The other day while doing my grocery shopping I found some incredible Organic Golden Beets, and had to get them! I roasted them and today decided to make a salad I love! It is a great combination of flavors, and (as usual 😉 hehe) packed with a lot of nutrients you need to keep healthy and happy.
If you are approaching or considering the idea of starting to eat healthy/clean, incorporating whole foods is essential. One trick that will get you up and going faster (and reduce the failure rate) is definitely getting organized in prepping your food in bulk or just ahead of time. That way you’ll always have something ready or that only requires minimal/quick assemble 😉
Nicole’s ORGANIC BEET SALAD with BALSAMIC CARAMELIZED ONIONS & GOAT CHEESE
Gluten Free – Low Fat – High Fiber – Clean Eating Recipe
2 large Organic Golden Beets
2 small/med Organic Red Beets
½ Red Onion
2 Tbsp Water
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
½ Tbsp Organic Unrefined Coconut Sugar
1 small bunch Arugula Salad (or Baby Spinach Salad)
4 oz Goat Cheese
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 400F. Wash, cut the edges, and wrap your beets singularly in aluminum foil. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Peel and cut in thick slices (1-1.5 in.). Set aside.
In a small pan combine the half red onion sliced, with water, balsamic vinegar, coconut sugar and a pinch of salt. Cook on low flame for 10-12 minutes, or until most all the liquid has absorbed/evaporated, and the onions are nice and soft.
Put your salad together by setting your greens on the plate first. Lay one golden and one red sliced beet around, and with the help of a small spoon, place half of the caramelized onions on top. Finish it up with half of the goat cheese, 1 Tbsp of olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. Additionally you can drizzle with some of the balsamic juice from the onions.
