Yesterday was another moderately frustrating day at work….computers arguing with me and the like so I was delighted to see beets in our CSA box when Ernie picked me up. I've had beet chips on my brain. I'd found a recipe or two that oven roasted them. By the time I was ready to cook dinner though I was not feeling organized enough to stack one baking sheet on another and rotate, etc.
I deep fried them.
Like little bits of garnet colored salty candy….or think of them like the bacon of the vegetable world…. I can not begin to tell you how good they were…..
Ernie sliced the beets up on the mandoline (my family doesn't allow me to use the mandoline anymore) and we tossed them into hot oil until I figured they had to be done. Laid them out on paper towel to drain and sprinkled with a bit of salt.
I threw the beet greens in with some corn—-all that with some grilled chicken made for a delightful dinner….
