A Rising River Farm original known to convert lifelong beet haters! It sounds crazy, but you must try it. Popcorn dresses with tamari and nutritional yeast make a perfect accompaniment.
6 medium beets, sliced thin (beet amount depends on how many are eating. Do one medium beet per person)
1 small onion, sliced paper thin (reds or Walla Walla’s are best)
dill pickles, sliced thin lengthwise
good bread, ideally from one of our many fine local bakeries (sourdough is particularly good)
mayonnaise, or some such substitute
lettuce or spinach
1. Slice beets into 1/4 inch rings and steam until tender.
2. Thinly slice onions and pickles.
3. Toast your favorite bread
4. To assemmble the sandwich spread some mayo on the toast, lay down a layer of beets, then a layer of onions, then pickles, then top with a leaf or two of lettuce or spinach to hold it all in place.
Now enjoy as beet juices dribble down your hands!
