Dorm-Friendly Beet Toast

sweet
savory

Cooking for oneself in college can often be daunting due to limited finances, limited kitchen appliances, and limited time, but the following recipe (in truth, it is more like a non-recipe) for beet toast was created with all three in mind. Whether eaten for a light breakfast, a snack, or a light lunch, beet toast serves as an ideal source of fuel between classes and study breaks, club meetings and seminars. The versatility of it also invites experimentation, which can add excitement to one’s daily routine while also increasing the range of nutrients. Beet toast can also be made in one’s dorm room and can be adopted for any diet. It is truly a valuable asset in the life of a college student.
