The world of beets is an amazing thing. When we mention the word beets, we think of the typical red beet.
Different Colors Of Beets At The Whole Foods Market
But but there is actually a rainbow of colorful beets. From red and orange to yellow and white and even a candy striped beet know as Chioggia or bull’s eye.
All colors have their unique flavor.
This recipe uses the golden beet, which can be medium to large in size and ranges in color from a deep orange to a mixture of gold, brown, and pale yellow.
The leafy green part of the beet can taste similar to spinach or Swiss chard.
The flesh is bright yellow to gold, and has a sweet crunchy flavor.
