The equinox is only days away so a wider array of spring vegetables is becoming available at your local farmers' market.
While busy at work last week, I asked a friend, who was going to our market, to shop for me and pick up what looked good. In addition to leeks and arugula, he bought me some beets.
While I had eaten beets in the past with some trepidation, I had never willingly cooked them myself. I am now a believer.
Try some and you will see what I mean. They make a great side dish.
