Leave it to a renowned chef to take a classic French dish, render it meatless and make it look better than the original. Such is the case with Tyler Florence’s Beet Tartare, from his new cookbook we’re working our way through, Fresh.

Best of all, this beet dish is not your typical dollop of health food on a plate. There’s tempura-fried onion and a horseradish sauce for dipping. If you’ve never loved beets but are willing to give them a fair second chance, now’s a very good time.
