Roasted beetroot and kale are combined to create a magnificent dish which will add colour and flavour to your meals. There is a delicious sweetness provided by the beetroot and a powerful selection of ingredients to add nutrition to your meals.
The most important aspect of any dish is fresh ingredients. This dish requires fresh kale (any variety), a large whole beetroot, 1/4 cup home made stock, 1/2 a red onion, pink rock salt and black pepper (to taste).
Chop the ends off the beetroot and peel or wash well. Chop into smallish pieces and roast with some olive oil until soft.
Kale needs to be organic if possible and washed very well as it is mentioned on the Environmental Working group’s 2015 list of vegetables high in pesticide contamination. I can understand why it is sprayed as the cabbage moths are very damaging to the crops, but it is better to have kale with a few holes in it than to be looking perfect.
Place the roasted beetroot in the food processor when just out of the oven and then the rest of the ingredients as the heat will steam them. Process until not quite a puree. Chunky is good. Serve asap with your meal.
So simple but a side dish that can be used over several days. It re-heats well in a saucepan and is a colour sensation which will excite your taste buds.
