I love the Farmer's Market! We are really lucky to be close to several Farmer's Market that occur about 4 different times a wee.! My favorite is the one on Saturday mornings, there is a wonderful mix of food vendors along with jewelry, clothing and musicians. I love browsing the stalls, sampling the fruit and planning out what I can make during the week. This weekend there were some fabulous beets that I couldn't pass up - both the traditional deep red and golden beets. I never do anything fancy with my beets, I like them prepared so that their natural flavors shine thru!
I peeled them with a vegetable peeler and roasted them in some foil with a dash of olive oil and salt and pepper. I roast them at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Once cooled I sliced them and served with creamy goat cheese and a sprinkling of balsamic vinegar. If I have them, I usually add some tangerines or mandarin oranges. Delicious!
