Iron Chef Challenge #1 - Beetroots

I have to admit that I am not a big fan of beets. Every now and then I get a craving for beet carpaccio but that's it. 
Surprisingly I am quite fond of the beet coconut combination and as I had a whole bunch of beets left (this is what happens when your parents do not know what kind of chocolate to send you...) I thought about trying to make something savory at first. As I wasn't sure whether it would turn out well, I also tried a (mostly) raw tartlet with beet cream, but both things came out very tasty and so you get a bonus recipe:

Raw Beet Tartlets:

the color of the cream is absolutely stunning

Beets with Coconut Sauce, Basmati Rice and pan-fried Tempeh and Oyster Mushrooms:

Oh I love this combination!

I love my tempeh plain with a dash of salt but it worked perfectly well with the oyster mushrooms which add a meaty taste
