Beets are healthy, and tastier than they look. I wanted beets for dinner, but needed a new way to eat them. Ive had beets pureed, pickled, and roasted, but thats it. I saw a recipe for a beet and rice burger so I figured I could make beet rice.
Beet rice is a great simple way to get more beets in your diet. Saute some beets, garlic, onions, and ginger in a little oil. Add some cumin tumeric, salt, and pepper, and Jasmine rice. Boil the rice following the it’s cooking instructions. For a perfect touch once you cook the rice stir in some fresh cilantro. This was delicious. I paired it with sunflower seeds, and bacon, broccoli slaw, and seared scallops and fish. This meal was appealing in color. Filled with a rainbow of healthy vegtables, seeds, and grains. Beet rice is something I’ll definitely make again. If you want to get your kids eating beets this is a great way.
Eating healthy does not have to be a chore. Have fun trying new things, and the world will open up it’s flavor profile to you. Put your own twist on a recipe you like. Match up meals of interest together and find a new cuisine style. You will not regret creating new meals you never knew existed, and being thankful for it.
