Sometimes you just need an easy-ish meal. The delicious fresh produce available at this times of year helps in this quest. The other night, we assembled our delicious beet salad (recipe here) and some dressed-up grilled cheese sammies.
Roasting the beets takes a bit of time, but it’s worth it — chop the beets* and get them roasting first, then work on the rest of the meal while they roast.
The co-chef made the grilled cheese sandwiches, with local cheese and our homemade whole wheat bread, dressed-up with sauteed spinach* and fresh green onions*, while I worked on the salad. He added a fried egg to his sandwich for a twist. Good fast food requires a bit more time and effort than traditional fast food, but the result is delicious and nutritious!
