-3 med. beets, washed & peeled, chopped into bite size pieces
-Half a sweet onion, chopped
-2 T. organic coconut oil or grapeseed oil
-6 lg. kale leaves, washed, remove from stems, ripped into pieces
-1/2 c. hemp seeds or cooked quinoa
-1 T. balsamic vinegar
-1 T. extra-virgin olive oil
-Sea salt & ground black pepper, to taste
-Goat cheese, sprinkled on top just before serving, optional
Preheat oven to 350°. Place beets and onion on a baking dish. Mix with the oil and season with sea salt and pepper.
Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until fork tender. Check at 45 minutes to make sure you don’t overcook it.
When the beets are almost done, place the kale onto a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes at 350°.
Once all your ingredients are cooked, place them into a large bowl and mix together. Sprinkle with cooked quinoa (great to use leftovers) or hemp seeds. Enjoy!
