Roasted Beet and Blood Orange Salad
Ingredients: 2 pounds gold beets * 2 pounds red beets * extra virgin olive oil * salt and freshly ground pepper * 6 blood oranges * 1/2 pound baby spinach * 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees * wash beets * trim the tops and roots from the beets * place the beets on a large enough piece of aluminum foil to fold over and seal (red beets on one sheet; gold beets on another) * drizzle with extra virgin olive oil * seal the foil * place both beet packages on sheet tray and roast in preheated oven for approximately 1.5 hours; until beets are easily pierced with a knife. * allow beets to cool and then peel. (FYI … beets are messy; this is a really great way to roast ‘em).
NOW … Peel blood oranges * remove all the pith * slice into 1/4 inch rounds. * wash the spinach well and dry * cut cooled beets into wedges (first the red and then the gold, keeping them separate less they ‘bleed’ into each other) * toss each with sherry vinegar * season with salt and pepper * let marinade a few hours. * In large bowl, toss beets and their juices together * add orange segments * toss gently * add spinach and toss extra gently! * salt and pepper to taste. Serves 6
Blood Orange Omelet
Ingredients: 3 blood oranges * 3 egg whites * 1 egg * lemon juice from 1/2 fresh lemon * 3 tablespoons orange juice (blood or otherwise) * non-stick spray * 2 tablespoons powdered sugar. * salt * 1/2 tablespoon of butter.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. * Peel blood oranges; remove pith, cut into slices lengthwise. * Beat one whole egg with salt, pepper and lemon and orange juices until thick and lemon-colored. * Beat egg whites until stiff, cutting and folding them into the first egg mixture. * Spray medium size skillet/pan. * Heat pan over medium to low flame. * Melt butter in pan. * Pour mixture into pan evenly. * Cook slowly (low heat). * When ‘puffy’ and delicately browned underneath, place omelet in oven and bake until top is light brown.
NOW … woo hoo, the fun part. Place omelet on plate; fold in 1/3 of the slices of orange. * Sprinkle with 1/2 powdered sugar. * Place remaining oranges around omelet and sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Serves 4.
