By @LifesLittleLookBook for Fairway
Prep Time: 5 minutes; Cook Time: 30 minutes; Serves: 4 people
For the Beets:
- 2 large beet, peeled and thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp Fairway Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- salt and pepper
For the Carrot Puree and Pesto:
- 3 carrots
- ½-1 tablespoon of butter
- ¼ cup of sour cream
- Fairway Fresh Pesto or Fairway Jarred Pesto

- Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with pam sprayed tinfoil.
- Thinly slice the beet. Add beets to baking sheet and cover evenly in oil, salt and pepper.
- Bake until crisp, 25-30 minutes, rotating and flipping halfway through. Cool chips and blot with paper towels to remove any excess oil.
- Meanwhile, place carrots in a large saucepan. Fill with water to cover by 1 inch; add salt. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce to a simmer. Cook until carrots are tender, 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a food processor. Add butter and sour cream; season with salt and pepper. Process until smooth, about 3 minutes.
