Eat your beets! These wonderfully flavored root vegetables are beautiful and tasty and full of beneficial health properties. They contain potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron, vitamins A, B & C, beta-carotene, beta-cyanine, and folic acid just to name a few! And they help guard against cancer and heart disease.

Our friend Charmanye made these little delights last summer served with goats cheese and a salad. Divine. Since I am not eating cheese, we ate them with avocados which was beautiful and satisfying. They were also yummy the next morning served with poached eggs!

1 cup onion, shredded
1 cup carrots, shredded
2 cups beets, shredded
1 teaspoon rosemary, finely chopped
1/2 cup rice flour
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Stuff a 1/3 cup measuring cup with the mixture. Heat a skilled over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then drop the formed mixture onto the hot pan. Continue with as many as your pan can hold, leaving room to flip. Cook for 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook another 3 minutes. Remove from heat and eat immediately.
