April is all about beets at Veggie Buds Club! This delicious recipe is one of the beet recipes included in this month's box.
It was developed by Heather Staller, a mom of two boys, ages 5 and 3, and cooking instructor specializing in bringing cooking into preschool classrooms. After college, Heather knew she wanted to be a teacher, but first followed her lifelong dream of going to culinary school. Teaching cooking combines both of her passions, and she truly enjoys introducing young children to the joys of cooking with fresh ingredients.

Kids love to bake so this is a great recipe to get your little one interested in trying beets. Because of the veggie of the month, the cookie dough has the brightest magenta color. Unfortunately, the color fades when baked so make sure to add the
beet to the blender together and celebrate the beautiful color it creates.
