For the longest time, I would refuse to eat beets. I have no idea why, I just never felt like I needed to try them. But one day all that changed. My friend Maria, who is half Lebanese, invited me over for some Kubbeh Bil Sinyeh, which she served with a vibrant beet salad. And let me tell you, I've never tried something she's made and didn't like it - her cooking is amazing! I gave it a try and the rest is history.
It was so simple and so delicious! I couldn't believe I had been missing out all these years. The salad was dressed in a tahini dressing that added a delightful nutty and earthy flavor.
Beets are a great source of fiber, folate, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beets are full of color and they will dye everything around them! So, be careful when cooking them and make sure not to wear anything white.
