Sissi from WithAGlass.com once joked that I should probably have a beetroot blog since I have a lot of beet recipes (ok, we’re not talking hundreds here, but it’s definitely something I have used a great deal in the past). Who knows, maybe I should publish a beetroot cookbook. Anyway, my son is getting more adventurous and less picky with his food. Certain vegetables (ok, most vegetables) are still a no-go for him, although he seems to love celery, cucumber, and raw spinach. I figured if he won’t eat it directly, why not bake the veg into something delicious like a brownie? Besides, everyone knows that even the most unhealthy of foods becomes nourishing and power-food-like when you bake beets into it… right? Right?… ehm… yeah.
Joking aside, I really enjoyed these. I wasn’t able to cook the beets for as long as I would have liked so it meant they were still a little hard when I puréed them. Not a problem for me because I just love me some beetroot, but unfortunately my mother-in-law wasn’t a fan. However, as long as you make sure the beets are sufficiently cooked then you’ll really never know they’re in here […]
