La.Pi.S. – RED

Pickled Beets

The theme for this week’s Lasang Pinoy Sunday (LaPiS) is RED. So we offer up these dark red pickled beets from our garden. Beets, while also grown in the Philippines is not commonly used in Filipino dishes. However, with the prevalence of fusion cuisines you just gotta know a Filipina will somehow find a way to use beets in Filipino dishes. Check out these ways to cook up beets Filipino style:

Collard & Beet Greens in Coconut Milk (Gata)
and
Pink Tinola

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.

    Perfect timing! I currently have in draft a post on Poached Pears In Red Wine And Beet. I will try to finish it today so I can join this week’s lapis.

    I seldom use beets in my cooking because it stains everything including my hands. I use gloves and cover the chopping board with triple sheets of plastic film whenever I make Russian salad.

    BTW, I love your pink tinola.:)

    JMom! Between you and me, I ate boiled beets some time last year in an attempt to lose weight. Nyahaha! They’re not bad at all. I know someone who puts beets in her potato salad recipe. 🙂

    Have a great week!
