Vegetarian Valentine's Day

The beet puree, which I serve with goat cheese & hazelnuts
A giant bloody steak is a Valentine's Day tradition, but not for our vegetarian family. Though I do have a gift certificate somewhere from Omaha Steaks (not to worry; they sell chocolate).

In looking for something red and suitably bloody, I turned to beets. Specifically, the gorgeous beet puree from Jerusalem. This mixture of roasted beets with Greek yogurt and Za'atar, served with goat cheese and hazelnuts, can be spooned on crackers or spread on bread as the base of an amazing sandwich.

Happy Valentine's Day - without the meat!
