The beet is what happens when the cherry finishes with the carrot..."

Little French Beets

[Microwave Recipe]

The New Basics Cookbook
by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins, 1989,
Workman Publishing Co., Inc.


“This is a ruby version of petits pois à la française: beets cooked
with radicchio leaves and flavored with balsamic vinegar and
lemon zest.
A perfect side vegetable with a fruit-stuffed loin of pork.”

4 beets (about 12 ounces total)
2 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
3/4 cup chicken stock, homemade
vegetable stock

or canned broth
1 small head radicchio, halved lengthwise
1 cup pearl onions
2 teaspoons unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1. Trim and peel the beets. Cut them in half, then into 1/4-inch-thick
slices. Set the beets aside.
2. Place the bacon in a microwave-safe 2-quart casserole, cover, and
cook at full power (650 to 700 watts) for 3 minutes.
3. Stir the beets and broth into the casserole, cover, and cook 4 minutes.
Stir, and cook 2 minutes.
4. Stir in the radicchio, onions, and flour. Cover, and cook 5 minutes.
5. Remove the casserole from the microwave, and stir in all the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
4 to 6 portions

Note:  This recipe was cooked on High (full power, 650 to 700 watts)
in a carousel microwave, using microwave-safe containers.
If your microwave is less powerful, you will have to allow for more
cooking time (approximately 1 1/2 times the amount called for –
but watch carefully); if it does not have a carousel, you may have
to rotate the dish while it is cooking.
