I wanted to try out some kind of hard-boiled-egg recipe in time for easter, so I decided to whip up some Harlequin Eggs: an appetizer similar to a deviled egg, but with a beet, carrot and greenbean filling (full recipe here.) Having learned my lesson with recipe experiments, I halfed the recipe down to a "tasting portion," but totally forgot to make it when people were around so I could use them as my taste-testers.
The recipe was very quick and easy to make. I used my rotary cheese grater to make quick work of shredding the cooked vegetables and the dish was done in no time and looking rather pretty. When I took a bite, my first thought was "weird..." This is largely because I've always thought beets tasted weird and the beets are the dominating flavor here. The texture, a mixture of creamy and crunchy, was enjoyable, but I just couldn't quite get into them.
My assessment on this recipe is that if you like beets, you might like this, but if you don't, steer clear.
