Dark Days Meal #10: Roasted Beets & Grilled Cheese

The Dark Days Challenge is on! Running until March 31, 2012 over 100 participants will be doing our best to cook and blog about one meal per week featuring SOLE (sustainable, organic, local, ethical) ingredients. Recaps will be hosted by the blog collective Not Dabbling in Normal where you can follow along with all of the other participants

This weeks Dark Days meal sprung out of a need to use some leftover items in our kitchen. Gail made up this easy, delicious, and comforting dinner.
Gail makes excellent roasted beets without any oil or butter which taste delicious and can be used in a number of dishes. For this dinner she roasted the beets and tossed them with a bit of marinated feta, they were a great accompaniment for a grilled cheese sandwich. For a little bit extra I enjoyed a few pickled green beans on the side.
The beets are from Red Fire Farm. Marinated Feta from West River Creamery. Extra Sharp Cheddar from Cabot, and the buckwheat sourdough was homemade with local flour from Four Star Farms! The pickled green beans were made during the summer with Kimball Farm green beans and garlic and our own dill.
