I’m still moving forward with the sprinters points on this Vegetarian Tour de France. I’m looking for fast and flavorful recipes and these beets fit the bill. As a bonus, they are so brightly colored that they’ll liven up any dull plate. (Rather than a sprinter’s jersey perhaps these should get the most aggressive jersey because of the deep red color?) They do have a strong flavor but they do take some of the “ick” out of the beet aversion some folks may have.
