Gold Beets and Chard with Toasted Walnuts and Pine Nuts

Gold Beets Chard salad Toasted Walnuts and Pine Nuts


The flavor of golden beets is milder yet robust compared to the strong earthy sweetness of the red beets. I love the bright yellow of it, almost as if it was steeped in turmeric powder which is a staple in my kitchen.

I usually cut them into wedges and cook them in the microwave till done - firm, not mushy. Then, heat oil in a cast iron skillet and pan roast them till golden brown. Toss some into lettuce salads, or use these roasted golden beets to make the beet-feta salad.

Here, I simply add chopped rainbow chard to the same cast iron skillet where golden beets are roasted; when chard wilts enough, season to taste; serve warm topped with toasted walnuts and pine nuts.
