RED WHITE AND BEETS

American produce, love it or grill it!

America, fuck yeah! Can you feel the patriotism emanating off the computer screen and making your heart beet to the Star Spangled Banner. Even if you aren’t a tea-partying real patriot, you gotta love your country right about now. And if you don’t, God shall smite thee with ten billion pounds of fireworks. In all seriousness folks, I’m not denigrating diversity. But I will be drinking heavily, grilling gleefully, and fornicating under a gun-powdered scented sky. Here’s to a healthy holiday full of American excess. Another beet from the grill?

Total time: Approximately 25 minutes
Projected cost: $10
Drinking buddy: American made liquor

Ingredients (serves 6)
1. 1 bunch BEETS
2. 1 tbsp CALIVIRGIN olive oil
3. 2 dashes sea salt
4. 1 tbsp goat cheese
5. 1/2 lemon

Step 1
Preheat the grill. Chop off the stems and tips of the beets, then peel away the skin. Chop the beets into 1/2 inch slices. Drizzle the beet slices in olive oil and season with salt.

Step 2
Lay out the beet slices on the grill. Cook one side (approx 10 min) and flip it and cook the other side (approx 5 min). Toss the grilled beets with goat cheese and lemon juice and serve.
