As the weather starts to get cooler, you may be looking for nourishing meal ideas that incorporate the fall and winter vegetables that are in season. We are highlighting Chef Renee Erickson's recipe from Row 7 - salt-roasted Badger Flame Beets with green coriander and ricotta - to bring some inspiration to the table and to encourage you to think outside of the box when it comes to seasonal vegetables.
Beets, which are harvested throughout summer and into late fall, are one of winter's greatest treats thanks to their excellent storage capacity.
While most mature beets have an earthy, bitter flavor, Row 7's Badger Flame Beet is a bit different. It boasts the sweetness of beets, but without their polarizing earthiness that we're all used to.
Row 7 is a seed company built by chefs, breeders and growers striving to make ingredients taste better before they ever hit a plate. Co-founded by Chef Dan Barber, vegetable breeder Michael Mazourek and seedsman Matthew Goldfarb, their mission is to change how we eat by improving how - and what - is grown at scale.
Working together in the field and kitchen, the team at Row 7 creates, tests, tastes and markets delicious new plant varieties to make an impact in the soil and at the table.
