Beets, Squash and Compassion

At the last NWVEG potluck here I got to taste Beet Tartare with Cashew Cheese. It was so good I had to find the recipe. I'm sure the name relates to Steak Tartare, a dish made with raw beef, so I wasn't surprised that I found Beet Tartare on a raw food website--- but, oddly,...
