What are beets good for? You can make a great tomatillo and beet tart with Feta cheese. Use Oregano and Basil to flavor it. Made on Puff Pastry Sheets

I am always trying to find interesting ways to incorporate beet into recipes.

Since I love Tarts and I love tomatillo, a light bulb was turned on in my head.

Why not mix the two together and make a delicious tasting tart?

Tarts take so little effort to make and they are great finger foods.  I can grab them and rush out of the door without worrying about ruining my outfit.

This tart works great if you are on the Mediterranean diet.  It has so many wonderful ingredients like spinach, beets, tomatillo and walnuts.  Each of these ingredients bring so much flavor and nutritional benefits to the beet tart.

Clearly I have made too many recipes for the last 2 weeks of “beet week”.  This is the last in the series.  I liked each of the recipes I made.

My favorite way to eat them is now with puff pastry.  They both go so well together.  Their texture is like a match made in heaven.

When I first started eating beets, I was in terrrible pain from a terrible fall I took. The doctor told me that I should try using bets because it will help in the healing process.

At that time, I was so down and kept wondering, “WHY ME??”

Then, a friend gave me a cheap trinket from a dollar store.  He told me to remember that there have been so many many good events in my life.  They happened because of and in spite of the bad events.

This is my good luck charm.  It helps me keep my life in perspective.  I never loose site of the good things that happened in my life.

  1. The only beets I like are pickled ones but this certainly has me thinking I should try it — great pics. You did an amazing, thorough post with your words. I have learned to count my blessings everyday and to VOICE them as well.

    Thank you for the wonderful share.

    1. Hello Carol,

      Thank you for your very kind words. I am so glad you will rethink beets. This turned out really great and i made believers out many beet skeptics. I am sure will like it.

  2. G’day! I love using beets in a tart! Your photo and recipe look and sound so healthy! Yum!
    This is now on my list to do!
    Cheers! Joanne

  3. I love your attitude. I try so hard to count my blessings; I’m always a bit embarrassed at the times I forget to. I love your trinket and that it is so valued! I’m going to write down my grateful list right now.
    The tart looks incredible 🙂

    1. Thank you, Michele. I am glad you are writing a grateful list. Feel free to post it on my FB timeline and I will share it. Everyone’s grateful list needs to be shared. I am sure you have a lonnnnng list! 🙂

  4. That tart looks fabulous, and I don’t even like beet!
    Great stories. It’s split seconds so many times, and we don’t even realize it!
    Thank you for reminding us to take the time and count our blessings. There are so many of them! One is a Friday night (yes, in Europe i’t gotten dark outside) going through all those wonderful USE YOUR WORDS posts!

    1. Thank you so much Tamara! I really appreciate it. I know it is hard for people to like beets. That is why I did a 2 week feature on it. I am hoping that people might start liking it slowly… It is so nice to hear from readers in other countries. I am always fascinated by their perspective. But, no matter what country it is, everyone is thankful for Friday night!!! You made my day with your post.

  5. Such a great outlook you have. I wish I (and so many others) could see things that way. I’ve never had beets or tomatillos, so I might have to try this tart. Good stuff!

    1. Thank you Stacy! I am so glad that you like my post. I try to put positive things on my blog and cheer up people. I know you are counting your blessings too.
