If you’ve been traveling the paleosphere for any amount of time, I’m sure you’ve come across Bill and Hayley. Originally of the Food Lovers Primal Palate, and then later the Food Lovers Kitchen, these two have been a great inspiration of mine in terms of taking beautiful pictures of food that is not overly complicated or contrived, but still as satisfying as some of the SAD foods many of us grew up on.
This was a dish we came up with after having picked up some MASSIVE beets from the farmers market in Culpeper, Virginia when visiting my parents. They were about to go bad, and we were about to leave town, so we needed something that would be a fun and easy vehicle to cook them. For whatever reason, prosciutto came into my mind (because it’s like fancy bacon), and this was born. This used about half of our beet supply, with the other half going into a mason jar for pickled beet sticks.
This is super easy to do, and took maybe 20 minutes total prep and cook time. Good as a finger food or to put on a plate with a main dish, as you can see above.
