Beetloaf

I will preface this recipe with a bit of insight into my cooking technique.  At the time of this cooking adventure I lived with roommates who were legitimate goddesses in the kitchen. Awe inspiring baked goods, 3 + course meals with perfect wine pairings, and the like were near daily occurrences in our home.  Being a health nut, cooking is a daily part of my routine but the process is usually regarded with a bit of a chuckle from afore mentioned kitchen goddesses.

My approach is simplistic and purposeful with two main goals:

  1. The food be nutritionally nourishing
  2. It must be satisfying- ie so enjoyable that I am not scrounging around for something different after it is consumed.

Within these parameters my food takes on many shapes, combinations, and strategies.

Tonight this lead to Beetloaf, possibly the reigning champ for best food item I have ever created (confirmed by 2 kitchen goddesses and 1 innocent bystander).

Enjoy
