Rosemary Beet Pate'

I mostly love beets for their pretty color and nutritional properties.  The taste can be overwhelming to me.  This stems from gross childhood dinners thanks to the canned variety.  Yuck!  Gag!  But now that I'm all grown up (sort of) I've been trying to find ways to enjoy them.  I love them in juice.  So much.  And I can chop them up and add them to a salad.  They make my meals LOOK better and I appreciate their sweetness when they blend with a mouthful of greens and avocado.  Yum. 

Yesterday I tried them in pate' with tasty results.  Success!  Another way to love beets.  I served it wrapped up in a collard leaf with arugula.

I'm making more of this today.  It's that good.  And filling. And packed with protein thanks to the hemp nuts.
