Spicy roasted beets

Just when you thought I was done with beets….

After my beet greens post the other day I thought I was too! But then I thought two things

1. if you have beet greens, then you usually also have beets. So maybe I should say something about these lovely healthy root vegetables like how they are packed with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detox potential goodness. 

2. To top it all off I then saw this recipe in www.vegetariantimes.com and I could not resist doing post number two on beets and sharing. Besides even if you do not like beets, spicy roasted? Doesn’t that sound delish? Perhaps this recipe will tempt you to give them a try, they are in season after all…

Recipe:

2 bunches of beets, golden preferred (tops removed-but now you know what you can do with those babies right?), washed and quartered. You may also peel if you like but you would miss out on some good fiber

2 tbsp. coconut oil

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

1 pinch of chili powder

preheat over to 400 degrees. Toss all ingredients together and spread on baking sheet, Bake for 30-40 minutes or until beets are tender. Turn them over once. Salt pepper as desired and enjoy…yum!

Beet greens – delicious recipe

I bought some beets at the framer’s market yesterday and they were tiny, but still little gems of red goodness. There was definitely more leafy stuff then beets and so I thought hmm… green and dark red leafy, has to be good for you, now how to make it taste good?

So I washed them well, dried them and chopped them up, stems and leaves. In a pan I added sesame oil, sesame seeds, (black because they have more calcium), garlic, a dab of seas salt and stir fried them up. They were super rich tasting and really delicious! I had some plain and then ate a few over savory flax crackers…amazing!
