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:

    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. 🙂
