Drops of liquidy red stipple the counter .... the remains of some recent mess are evidenced by the now diluted pink water in the mugs sitting in the sink .... a pair of hands working hard nearby are deeply stained with red.
Is this a murder scene? Some crime show?
NOPE. It's all the result of working with beets! And messy as they may be, they make for great veggie (and vegan) burgers.
