Day 132

I've been eyeing off these beetroot for awhile now and today was their day to shine.  Beetroot has been probably the best performing root vegetable in the aquaponics system and not only do they provide the tuber but also the leaves can be used in salads for a nice beetroot flavour crunch.

Tonight I wanted to prepare these fairly simply and in a way that may not be known to many people.   I picked some rosemary and chopped it finely, added it too the grated beetroot and with some salt and pepper,  an egg yolk and a dash of flour to make beautiful beetroot rosti.   Some saut√©ed spinach from the patch and an oven roasted chicken breast and dinner is served.   Let me tell you.  This was amazing.
