Favourite Raw Beet recipes?

phoenikia Aug 13, 2007 11:46 AM

I've got lots of fresh beets from the garden, and I was hoping to try out a few raw beet recipes this week.

I'd love to hear about your favourite recipes using raw beets.

    Grated, with carrots and daikon, rice vinegar, ginger, black sesame seeds.

        I also do a grated salad with beets and carrots, but I dress it with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Very refreshing.

          Along a similar line, grated raw beet and carrot with finely chopped green apples and walnuts is delish. Just toss with olive oil and lemon juice, then season with some S&O.

            There's a great restaurant in Port Townsend, WA, called the Fountain, which serves delicious salads featuring long, thin strands of red beet. Perhaps created with some sort of circular mandoline? (I should really ask them sometime.)

              Other companies may well make them too, but the most common one I've seen is made by Benriner, the same company that makes the relatively inexpensive but well made Japanese "mandolines."

                Oh, thanks, Mike. At the risk of heading off-topic, are the Benriners useful for other foods?
