Sometimes our resource worker brings us random bags of almost spoiled food.
Today it was worn out lettuce, a whole bag of peppers, and two bags of beets and leeks.
I cut the tops off the beets:
And wrapped them in foil with a little bit of oil:
And wrapped them up like baked potatoes:
I cooked those in the oven at 375 for an hour, while chopping up the leeks:
I cut off the root and the tops, and then sliced them in half, and then sliced them in half inch sections.
I sautéed those in the pan with a little butter, and added chickpeas for additional protein:
Then I took the beets out, and could slip the “meat” right out of the skins. I diced them up and threw them in the mixture, adding a little salt and pepper.
That’s dinner! It was delicious!
