Here is a simple side that is amazingly tasty, elegant and oh so colorful - the beet!
We obtained some fresh harvested local beets from Local Fare, a local farm delivery service in Saint Augustine, FL. They were picked the day before being delivered to our door.
We couldn't wait to try them so we scrubbed them, sliced them and roasted them in the oven at 400 degrees. We coated them in coconut oil, but olive oil would be good as well.
Once they are cooked to your liking, pull them out and plate them. Drizzle a little more extra virgin olive oil over them and season with Smoked Serrano Finishing sea salt! The freshness of these beets are amazing and the smoked serrano gives this dish heighten flavor and a bit of smoke.
