Beet Remoulade

Beet Remoulade

The wonderful savory flavors of capers and mustard meet the earthy sweetness on red and gold beets.

1 medium red beet
1 medium gold beet
1 cup vegenaise or mayonnaise:
3 tbs capers
1 tbs Dijon mustard
1 tsp white wine vinegar

Peel the beets and cut into 1 inch cubes. First cutting in half and laying flat surface on the cutting board.
Steam the beets for 25-45 minutes, checking first after 20. They should be soft like a cooked potato.
While the beets steam, place the capers, Dijon and white wine vinegar in a food proceesor and process briefly a few times, scraping the sides between blands. When faily uniform add the vegenaise or mayonnaise and blend for 30 seconds or so. Try not the overblend as the vegenaise and mayonnaise both become bitter woth over-blending. This is the remoulade.

When the beets are done, take half the remoulade and mix with the beets and serve. Alternatively, blend the beets with the caper, mustard and vinegar, before adding the vegenaise/mayonnaise.
