Beets and Leeks #food #gf

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!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
