beets two ways

The mandolin has been getting a lot of use lately. I think my favorite things to slice are beets. I love the taste of thin, raw beets! (I don't however, love how many shirts I've ruined in the process.)

Here are my two most recent adventures in beet-boxing. Enjoy!


3 beets, peeled and scrubbed
1/4 cup olive oil
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Slice beets into 1/4 inch strips using  a mandolin
Place beets in bowl and pour olive oil on beets, mixing and massaging the oil over the beets.
Place individual slices on tin foil. 
Apply salt to taste.
Bake for 20 minutes.

Spice up beet chips by adding some parsley or other herbs before baking. 

Perhaps this next recipe would be better suited for Halloween??

B.O.O. salad
2 beets, peeled and scrubbed
2 oranges, peeled
1/2 red onion
1/4 cup kalamata olives
1/4 cup parsley
1/8 cup orange avocado oil (or other oil)
salt and pepper to taste

Slice beets 1/4 inch using a mandolin. 
Cut 1 orange into slices with a knife
Slice red onion with whatever you want.
slice olives.
Place onions, beets, oranges and olives in a bowl. Sprinkle parley over bowl. For the dressing, juice the second orange and mix with the oil. Pour over salad and add salt and pepper to taste.
