You Won’t Believe What We are Cooking!

I kid you not: 15 carnivorous kids just chose a vegan beet burger on a handmade potato bun as the winner of Wednesday’s Iron Chef challenge! And a red velvet cake (colored with beets!) with strawberry icing came in a close second.   Our kitchen cranked out incredible root vegetable dishes — after the kids shopped for their ingredients at the Farmers Market.  It was hard to beat our Stone Fruit and Tomato challenges earlier this month, but this week was simply incredible!! Here’s what our chefs made, most of which they cooked without recipes!

Carrot, Squash, and Potato Latkes with Homemade Applesauce
Beet Sliders with Freshly Baked Potato Buns
Parsnip Puree with Caramelized Onions
Caramelized Onion Tarts with Goat Cheese and Thyme
Smashed Potato Salad  with Fresh Herbs
Arugula Salad with Beets and Goat Cheese
Beet Red Velvet Cake
Purple Carrot Souffles
Beet, Carrot, and Berry Smoothies
