Iron Chef: The Beet Roundup

As suspected, beets know no boundaries.  We’ve spanned cuisines and countries in this one.  This challenge even had some folks switching over from the beet haters side.

Some interesting ideas tackled this week:  beets to make pink bread and pasta.  Whoa.   Beetloaf?  Intriguing!
