aka “And The Beet Goes On…”
I saved the best for last!
I thought beets were weird. Sure, they looked sweet and innocent from far away, but as soon as I mixed them into my salad, they turned my feta cheese hot pink. Hot pink. Strangely, I don’t find neon-colored dairy products very appetizing…
So while my mom swore by them, I picked those pesky beets out of my food.
Until I started reading about cutting-edge chefs adding them to baked goods. After coming across 27 recipes for chocolate and beet treats, I wondered why I hadn’t thought of something like that before…
I’ll tell you why: Because these brownies are SO addicting. They’re dense, moist, rich, and fudgy — everything a brownie should be! And with the hidden veggies inside, I felt absolutely no guilt eating two three five the day I pulled them out of the oven.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
