For some, the flavor of raw beet is an acquired taste. The trick is in making the beet tasty and less, well, beety. The Heart-Healthy Tropical Beets recipe incorporates ingredients that compliment the rooting, grounding quality of the beet while allowing it to expand (across continents). With this recipe you’ll have the most resistant beet eater asking for "a little more, please." Visit www.meamoeba.com for the original post and additional exotic raw food recipes.
Heart-Healthy Tropical Beets
4 medium beets
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 green onion
1 cayenne pepper, seeded
¼ cup coconut milk
1 ½ tsp raw apple cider vinegar
1 tsp raw agave
½ tsp curry
1 tsp salt, or less
• Wash, peel, and julienne cut beets. (I used one golden beet for the photo.) Place in a bowl. Add olive oil and toss to coat. Set aside.
• Slice green onion and seeded cayenne pepper. Reserve several onion slices for garnish. Add the rest of the onion and pepper to the beets.
• Add coconut milk (fresh or purchased, light or regular), apple cider vinegar, agave, curry, and ½ to 1 teaspoon of salt. Stir well.
• Serve immediately or set aside to let beets absorb the flavors.
Makes 2-3 side servings. Tropical Beets will keep in the fridge for two days.
