Eat Your Beets Fresh beets have an earthy flavor that pairs well with other vegetables. One half-cup of beets is a good source of folate, fiber, and riboflavin, which works with other B-vitamins to release energy from stored carbohydrates. Beet greens are also a nutrition powerhouse, packing high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron. Serve shredded raw in a salad, or try them roasted or grilled for a sweet treat.

Ditch the canned beets and try fresh beets from the farmers market for a healthy salad topper or side dish.

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 cups chopped onion 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 1 1/2 cups bulgur, preferably medium or coarse (see Note) 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 2 cups vegetable broth, or reducedsodium chicken broth 1 1/2 cups chopped carrot 2 teaspoons grated or finely chopped fresh ginger

Directions

1 teaspoon coarse salt 1/4 cup lightly packed finely chopped fresh dill 1/4 cup lightly packed finely chopped fresh mint 1/4 cup lightly packed finely chopped flat-leaf parsley 3 tablespoons lemon juice, or more to taste 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

1.Heat oil in a large high-sided skillet or broad shallow saucepan with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat until hot enough to sizzle a piece of onion. Add onion, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 12 to 18 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add bulgur, turmeric and cumin and cook, stirring, until the bulgur is coated with oil, about 1 minute. 2. Add broth, carrot, ginger and salt and bring to a boil, stirring. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until all the broth is absorbed and there are “eyes” or indentations in the surface of the bulgur, about 15 minutes. (Do not stir the pilaf.) Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. 3. Stir dill, mint, parsley and lemon juice into the pilaf. Serve topped with walnuts. Note: Bulgur is made by parboiling, drying and coarsely grinding or cracking wheat berries. Don’t confuse bulgur with cracked wheat, which is simply that—cracked wheat. Since the parboiling step is skipped, cracked wheat must be cooked for up to an hour whereas bulgur simply needs a quick soak in hot water for most uses

Fresh pick:

sweet corn GRILL IT 1. Prep grill with direct, high heat. 2. Place corn in husks on hot grill. Cover. Turn occasionally, until charred on all sides, about 15 to 20 minutes. 3. Remove from grill and let sit for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Remove silks and charred husks.

Corn often gets a bad rep. “A lot of my patients think corn is a worthless vegetable, based on the fact that it’s ‘starchy’ and because the industry has turned most of it into high fructose corn syrup,” says Joanna Lipp, R.D., a URMC clinical nutrition specialist. Skip the tortilla chips and opt for recipes using whole corn – kernels are considered a whole grain, says Lipp.
