A Heart-Healthy Vegetable Recipe
- 6 medium-sized organic beets
- 3 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Organic Celtic sea or Kosher Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Wash beets, trim off green tops, but do not peel. Boil until tender, about 30-45 minutes. Run cold water over the boiled beets, and when cool enough to handle, slip off the skins. Slice the beets and toss with the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Makes 6 servings.
