  • 3 large beets peeled & cut into 2'' cubes
  • 12 oz pappardelle pasta
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 7 oz crème fraîche
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup parsley 2 tbs reserved for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Toss beets in a large mixing bowl with 2 tbs of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Roast beets for 45 minutes or until they are tender enough to poke with a fork. While the beets are roasting, toss broccoli in a large mixing bowl with 2 tbs olive oil, salt, and pepper, bake on a separate sheet pan with the beets for 15-20 minutes.
  • While the beets and broccoli are cooking, prepare the corn and pappardelle: bring a saucepan to a boil, add corn, and cook for 2-3 minutes. Drain and set aside. Cook pappardelle according to package directions. Drain pot, leaving about 1/4 cup of water in the pot. Set aside.
  • When beets are finished roasting, heat a medium sized pan with 1 tbs olive oil on medium-high heat. Once heated, add butter, garlic, shallot, and apple cider vinegar. Sauté until shallot begins to turn translucent, about 1.5 minutes. Add beets and sauté in the shallot/garlic mixture for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Transfer beets from pan to an immersion blender or food processor with crème fraîche and parsley, purée until smooth.
  • Transfer pappardelle back to pot and mix with 1 cup beet purée.


*If you have beet purée leftover, freeze it in an air tight container
