A Rising River Farm original known to convert lifelong beet haters! It sounds crazy, but you must try it. Popcorn dresses with tamari and nutritional yeast make a perfect accompaniment.
-6 medium beets, sliced thin (beet amount depends on how many are eating. Do one medium beet per person)
-1 small onion, sliced paper thin (reds or Walla Walla’s are best)
-dill pickles, sliced thin lengthwise
-good bread, ideally from one of our many fine local bakeries (sourdough is particularly good)
-mayonnaise, or some such substitute
-lettuce or spinach
1. Slice beets into 1/4 inch rings and steam until tender.
2. Thinly slice onions and pickles.
3. Toast your favorite bread
4. To assemble the sandwich spread some mayo on the toast, lay down a layer of beets, then a layer of onions, then pickles, then top with a leaf or two of lettuce or spinach to hold it all in place.
Now enjoy as beet juices dribble down your hands!
