I couldn’t resist this local basket of beets this week! I love to support our local growers, so this week our family enjoyed a side dish of some spicy roasted beets! They also happen to be one of the top anti-inflammatory foods for osteoarthritis.
If you like beets, then you might want to try a couple of other beet recipes such as: Strawberry Beet Smoothie or Spiced Chicken with Roasted Balsamic Vegetables
This one is super simple so that you can get dinner on the table in a flash.
