Beet Dessert Recipes

I love red beets.  They are high in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and iron.  The greens have more iron content than spinach or swiss chard and should be sautéed as a cooking green.  I usually steam or roast the beets to enjoy their sweetness.  My family is not a fan of beets.  They were on the counter last night and no one was interested in eating them as a vegetable for dinner.   If they won’t eat them as a vegetable, they can eat them in dessert!  Here are two recipes.

Whoopie Pies

I follow this blog for the creative ways to use vegetables.  This is actually the recipe that I plan to make with this week’s share of beets.

Beet Brownies

I have tried this recipe that originally was in Vegetarian Times and it made good brownies.
