Uncommon Recipe: Phat Beets Happy Appy

Phat Beets

Ok, so it’s not quite as patriotic as red, white and blue, but it looks festive enough for the Fourth, no? This tasty treat is a breeze to make and is great if you have some extra blueberries around (maybe leftover from a blueberry pie or a flag cake:)?). The sweet and earthy taste of the beets and the blueberries are a great complement to the mild goat cheese and salty crunch of the crostini.

Let’s turn it up!
