Between Arugula and Beets


Arugula Pesto recipe

I’ve realized that I didn’t tell you yet about some recent work I’ve done for Mindful Magazine again. I like what I am doing for them. I like that I am able to create recipes using my favorite foods.

In these two past issues (August 2013; October 2013), the food column tells you about arugula, and beets. Green and red. Both amazing colors and ingredients to style and photograph, I thought.

While Angela Mears shares insights about both vegetables, I share four recipes: an Arugula Pesto; an Arugula Salad, Beet chips, and a Beet risotto.

I hope they make you hungry.

Bon appétit!





Beet Chips recipe




  1. Très jolie série de photos, j’adore ces mini-plaids en tricot, c’est toi qui les fait ? Oh j’ai envie de betterave maintenant …

  2. Is there some place where the arugula pesto recipe can be viewed?

  3. Quelle bonne idée le pesto, j’ai justement la roquette qui a envahi mon jardin. Un bon moyen de l’utiliser tout en contrôlant sa prolifération. Une recette qui arrive juste à temps avant les premiers gels en Ontario!

  4. Beautiful photos and recipes–I just saw a copy of this magazine the other day for the first time, I’m going to have to give it a closer look now! Arugula pesto sounds divine…

  5. les recettes ne sont pas très lisibles
    quel dommage!
    comment faire pour mieux les déchiffrer?

  6. Bonjour! En effet, comme d’autres l’ont remarqué, les recettes sont illisibles! un peut triste de ne pas pouvoir essayer le pesto!

  7. Sorry for small fonts all. The recipes used to be on their site. Check it out.

  8. You definitely made me hungry, Béa! The red beet risotto looks amazing. Such a beautiful dish.

  9. Dear Beatrice,
    congratulations on your blog, it is obvious you love what you do and it makes lives of your reades brighter and happier. Even on this side of the Atlantic. Please, if anyone gets these wonderful mouth watering recipes in the print we could actually read, do let us know.
    Bea, thanks for sharing, Špela

  10. Tes idées et tes photos sont toujours très alléchantes. Vivement cette salade à la roquette et ce risotto aux betteraves!

  11. WOW they all look so beautiful! I can’t wait to try out your beet chips- ive always wondered how to make them!

  12. How do I view the actual recipes? Do I have to subscribe to the magazine? As a vegetarian, I am dying to try these. Your recipes are absolutely wonderful!

  14. Béa, quelle joie de te retrouver !
    Les recettes sont malheureusement illisibles et ne sont plus en ligne sur le site du journal.
    Le temps passe, les choses changent…Les photos sont toujours aussi belles mais plus de coin français, des posts irréguliers, et maintenant des recettes illisibles..
    Pour autant, j’admire ton travail.
    Bien à toi, Lazaz

  15. Gorgeous work! I love the peppery touch of arugula and the sweetness of beets. That red risotto is definitely calling me;)

    Hope all is well, Bea! xo
