Home and sick today, I took a little time to read some of my favorite food blogs. A little daydreaming for when I have the energy to do some "real cooking". I came across a gorgeous use for your beets:

Beet and Caramelized Onion Galette

Serves 4
1 recipe for savory tart dough (mine has hazelnuts in it)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon salt

Fresh thyme leaves
