If beets grew abundantly in SE Asia...?
...what would the Thais, Vietnamese, and other populations of the region do with them?
Okay, I know this is sort of a weird question, but I've got beets in the garden and want to do a SE Asian-themed dinner sometime soon. So...anyone want to take a stab at this one? I'm guessing the Thais especially would take the sweetness element in the beets in interesting directions, with their tendency to brilliantly balance out salty, sour, sweet, and umami.
