CHOPPED RED BEET SALAD


Yields

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 to 2 large beets, steamed (OR use BPA FREE canned beets in water)

1 bunch of kale, chopped

handful of fresh basilleaves (OR 1 teaspoon dried basil)

1 avocado, chopped

1 lemon, juiced

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

sea salt and black pepper to taste

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

Directions

If using raw beets, place a large pot with an inch of water on the stove over high heat. Place a metal steam basket inside. Chop the beets into quarters and place in the steam basket. Cover and steam the beets for about 10 to 12 minutes until they can be easily pricked with a fork. Remove from heat and serve on top of the salad.

 

Add the kale, basil, avocado, lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to a large bowl. Use clean hands to massage the kale until all the ingredients are well mixed and the kale is wilted. Top with pumpkin seeds and beets.
