The first splashes of Fall colors and refreshingly cooler temperatures arrive in the Carolinas, inspiring me to draw on my recipes with an earthy tone of root vegetables and sweet mountain apples.
Cooking classes on location
This reminded me of an event last Fall before the world changed! A cooking class that I held right in the tunnel at Tega Hills Farm, with a gorgeous Roast Apple and Beet Salad with Warm Goat’s Cheese Croquettes, on a bed of the super fresh Tega Hills Farm lettuces and microgreens.
The earthiness of the beets is tempered by roasting, with a wonderfully sweet result, complemented by roasted apples. Even those who tell me they don’t like beets love this salad!
Beets, a health superstar
Beets are packed full of amazing health benefits, a valuable source of vitamins and minerals, including folate, manganese, and potassium. Packed full of nitrates, beets are heart-healthy and great for controlling blood pressure, s well as assisting the liver in the detoxification process.
I do hope you try this delicious salad, keep an eye out in my newsletter, we will schedule more in-person events as soon as possible!
