Peanut Butter and Beets

Not together, silly! That would be disgusting. I had peanut butter for breakfast in the form of Peanut Butter Waffles from Vegan Brunch:

I've had my eye on these since I bought the book forever ago, but for some reason, it's taken me an age to make them. The batter is made with 3/4 cup of chunky PB, so every bite has a little peanut crunch surprise. The maple syrup on top really takes these over the edge of awesomeness.

Now, for the beets. Remember my Zukay Kvass review a few weeks back? If not, click the link to read all about Zukay's new fermented vegetable drink. It's good if you're into fizzy kombucha-like drinks, and I am.

Zukay wants to give away a six-pack of their Ginger Beet Kvass to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment here on your favorite way to eat beets. Link to the contest on Facebook and leave a separate comment letting me know you did. Ditto for Twitter. That's a total of three comment entries per reader. Be sure and leave your email in your comment if yours isn't listed on Blogger. I'll randomly choose one comment next Tuesday night.

Beets...

PICKLED!

I'd like to try them in a salad or as borscht or something, but them pickled ones are just too good.

And I'm just down with anything fermented. :)

Yum! This stuff looks amazing! I love roasted beets the best. Raw, shredded beets on salad is a close second. ashtree8@gmail.com

My favorite way to "eat" beets is juiced! Cafe Gratitude in LA has the most delicious juice called I Am Worthy and it's packed with kale, beets, celery, apple, and ginger juice. So good!

Baked beets are awesome!

lavendermoose said...

Juiced!

My favorite way to eat beets is grated right into a salad so everything else turns pink, ha!

foodfeud said...

I tweeted about this one too (@antimaud)

Those waffles sound amazing. I love peanut butter pancakes, so now I'm wondering why I haven't eaten peanut butter waffles. Go figure.

It's been awhile since I've had beets! I like 'em as chips, though.

Beet pancakes, beets in green smoothies (okay they really turn red then), and roasted beets. I couldn't pick just one.

Nikki said...

As soon as I saw the title of the post I had to check to see if you ate them together :)

Steamed baby beets on salad with a creamy miso dressing. My favorite.

I love when my boyfriend makes beet juice lemonade!

Erin said...

Roasted beet "chips"!

Rick said...

LOL great minds think alike, check out my post from today!

we just had the peanut butter waffles last week, and ate them again cold for leftovers...just awesome!

Rick said...

Bethany said...

Waffles look SO yummy.
Have not yet tried the new Zakay products!

Babette said...

I love beets grated on salads.

Wendy said...

I looooove eating beets with a massaged kale salad. Mmm! Kale and beets were meant to live together! :)

Rachel said...

I like them cooked, lightly sprinkled with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Basically exactly as my mother made them for Sunday dinners!

Mychie said...

Roasted! Yum.

carrie faye said...

RebekahIsVegan said...

shredded on a salad, even though I always make a terrible mess doing it!

I love the new blog look, Bianca! (Or, maybe it's not new? I usually read in Google Reader!)

My favorite way to eat beets is the beet salad at my uncle's Israeli restaurant, Hummus, in Philadelphia! :)

Thanks for holding the contest!

Jennifer said...

I love beets pickled, roasted, or just the greens sauteed. I think beets are the most beautiful color, and they look like little jewels wrapped in foil.

Lauren said...

Shredded on a salad is the way to go for me. They dye EVERYTHING though! Adore your blog :)

I love peanut butter. Will try it with waffles, looks delicious.

Zee said...

baked beets sliced thinly into "chips" mmmm!!!

KLund said...

Peel, slice and roast in the oven with olive oil and rosemary. Sautee the greens with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper and top with the roasted beets. So good. Have made this with purple and also yellow beets.

Tender Branson said...

You don't think beets and peanut butter would work well together? What's wrong with you...

Ok, you are probably right.

Melissa said...

I love roasted beets with olive oil and garlic... I serve them atop sauteed greens!

Trina said...

Pickled or in my juicer with carrots and pears.

Katie said...

I love pickled beets in a salad! Their flavor totally makes the salad!

I really enjoy your blog! I have been reading for a few months now and it always inspires me :)

Emmy said...

Roasted. They are DIVINE.

Shaving Oil said...

Looks amazingly delicious, want to try this as well.
