Week #1 CSA Food Box: Best-Ever Roasted Beets in Dipping Sauce Recipe

This is a new post to our blog.  Each week we will feature a new recipe utilizing our CSA  foods!

We just got our first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Food Box last Thursday from Live Earth Farm, Watsonville.  This farm has many pick-up locations throughout Santa Cruz County and Santa Clara County.   The box consists of 100% organic  fruits and veggies that are no more than 24 hours old!

If you don’t like beets, trust me, you’ll actually love these.  This is a gateway beet recipe! 

Best-Ever Roasted Beets & Dipping Sauce Recipe   ->

Serves 3

  • 4 medium-sized Beets

Preheat oven to 350F.  Wash the beets.  Wrap the beets in foil and roast in the oven for approximately 1 hour (this depends on the size of the beets).

Remove the beets from the oven when roasted.  Rub the skins off of the beats and cut the beets into bite-size pieces (not too small).

Dipping Sauce

  • 1 Part Horseradish
  • 3-4 Parts Sour Cream
  • Salt & Pepper

Mix these ingredients together in a small bowel. Arrange the roasted beets on a plate and drizzle the sauce over top!
