I am definitely not a huge fan of winter, but I will say my favorite thing about it is that beets are in season. I'm so obsessed with beets right now, I'm loving experimenting adding them to pretty much everything. Here is a great weekday meal that's cheap, easy and healthy. What more could you want?

What you need:           

  • 4 whole wheat flat pitas (you can use pizza crust, too, if you want)
  • 2 small, sliced roasted beets
  • Beet greens, washed
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 15 oz package ricotta cheese
  • 1 small package herb goat cheese
  • Black ground pepper
  • Olive oil

    What you do:

      Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a small skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil and saute onions about 5 minutes, until they begin to turn clear. Spread a mixture of ricotta and goat cheese onto each pita. Depending on how much cheese you want, you may have cheese left over. Add sliced beets and onions to each pita and spread evenly. Sprinkle each pizza with black pepper. Cook in the oven on cookie sheets for 10 minutes. Remove and top with beet greens, allowing them to wilt from the heat of the pizza. Add red pepper flakes to taste and enjoy!

          Serves 4.
