I must say that this is one of the best way and form I have consumed beets! My daughter ate a whole bowl of this salad so for all those moms

struggling to get all the good stuff with nutrients in your child, this might be a dish you wanna try! Beets belong to root vegetable family and are super rich in antioxidants and nutrients.

This dish took me less than 2 minutes to plate once the beets were cooked. Cooking beets takes a while but trust me this dish is so worth it!

Ingredients:(Serving Size for 2)

Beets- 2 or 3 beets

Goat cheese crumbled- 1/4 cup

Sunflower seeds- 1/4 cup

Red Onion- 1/2

Olive Oil

Salt to taste

Preparation:

 

Cooking the beets: There are 2 ways to cook the beets. You can peel the skin dice them evenly and roast it in the oven at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

or

You can use a pressure cooker. I love cooking a lot of my veggies in my cooker since its faster and cooks evenly. Peel the skin of the beets, dice the beets evenly and transfer them to a container with water. Cook the beets in a cooker. It takes me about 15- 20 minutes to cook them in a pressure cooker.

I transfer the cooked beets in a bowl and add the crumbled goat cheese and mix it up. Then I add salt to taste, drizzle some olive oil and leave it in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Prior to serving, mix some sunflower seeds and serve as a cold salad.

Absolutely healthy and delicious meal!

With much love …….as always….
