Roasted Beets, Greens, Millet, and Pine Nuts
I roasted some beautiful fresh organic beets today.
Then I peeled and chopped them in large pieces,
tossed them with some lightly steamed greens, rainbow chard, spinach, and beet greens,
caramelized onions, garlic, and red bell pepper,
and some steamed millet. Millet is a very similar to quinoa. They are difficult to tell apart when not labeled. The quinoa is on the left, the millet on the right of this photo. (I think) :D
I tossed all this together with some fresh lemon juice, golden balsamic vinegar, pumpkin seed oil, chopped garlic, a tablespoon of red miso, a dollop of grainy mustard, and a dash of shoyu. (no measuring involved, sorry) I also roasted about a handful of pine nuts and added the seeds of half a large pomegranate that needed a home.
We can eat this warm or cold. This will be very good alongside some beans or as a full meal all by itself.
