The other day I acquired 2 bags full of beets. Beets are not really a favorite in my family, but food is food and who is to complain when it’s free I knew you could sauté them, pickle them or shave them over a salad but I decided why don’t I mash it up like a potato and mix some apples with it. It actually turned out pretty tasty. And I don’t know about you but I have a picky toddler and even he loved it.
This recipe is super easy to make and it’s great to stick in some ice cubes and toss into a smoothie, or put in reusable food pouch or eaten with some yogurt. It’s such a simple easy way to get your toddler to eat there veggies. Let’s get the beets rolling…I mean boiling! Enjoy!
