Commenters from last week have asked for recipe ideas for beets, turnips and fava beans.
Think outside the (CSA) box with beets -- lighter color beets are just as flavorful and easier to work with, as they don't stain your hands! And if you get green leafy tops with your beets, substitute them for other greens in salads.
- Beets, apples and ginger with clemetine vinaigrette from Amanda Hesser by way of the Ninj: oranges or tangerines would be fine substitutes for clementines
- Roasted beet and butternut squash soup from Dinner with Julie: amazingly flavorful and a gorgeous color to boot!
Try substituting turnips for any recipe that calls for other root vegetables such as carrots or parsnips.
