Ingredients

Maple Glazed Beets

  • 1 cup shredded beets
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Roasted Butternut Squash

  • 1 cup butternut squash or sweet potatoes (cubed)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp granulated garlic

Salad

  • 4 cups mixed greens, kale, spinach, etc.
  • 1/4 cup toasted pistachios
  • 1/2 cup sliced leeks
  • 1 green apple, chopped

Instructions

Maple Glazed Beets

  • Shred beets and microwave for 1 minute.  Let sit for 1 minute and drain water.  Add coconut oil, salt and maple syrup and mix.  Bake at 400 for 20 minutes with squash.

Roasted Butternut Squash

  • Spread squash on baking sheet with silicon mat.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and granulated garlic and mix.  Add beets to same baking sheet, separated from squash, and bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

Salad

  • While vegetables are baking, slice leeks and toast pistachios in pan for 2-3 minutes on medium heat.  Set aside.  Add greens to large bowl, mix in baked glazed beets, roasted butternut squash, sliced leeks and pistachios.  Mix well. 
  • This salad doesn't really need dressing because of the maple glazed beets, but if you like dressing, choose a light vinaigrette.

Notes

1.  My greens include kale, spinach and chard.  I grew the purple kale in my Tower Garden.
2.  This salad will serve 4 as a side salad or 2 as a dinner/lunch salad.
3.  The beets in the photo are not 1 cup but 4 cups.  I like to add the beets to many dishes.
