Beets aren’t necessarily the vegetable people think of as “addicting” or “crowd-pleasers” but this recipe defies all odds. Our resident “food alchemist” and Sakara Wellness Coach, Sasha Pagni, graciously shared her beloved marinated beets method that converts all who are on the fence about this root vegetable. “The vinegar and mustard in this recipe let the beets’ true, deep flavor shine,” Sasha says. “They are requested favorites among my family and friends, and I love to make them especially in fall, where I’m personally seeking grounding vegetables to help root my body’s energy during this busy season.”
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
A member of the chenopod family (along with chard and quinoa), beets are an especially powerful plant as they contain phytonutrients called betalains. These compounds work with glutathione (the master antioxidant) to reduce oxidative stress in the body and increase phase II liver detoxification. Plus, their nutrient profile includes carotenoids classified as epoxyxanthophylls which serve to protect the nervous system and eyes—organ systems that require nutrition and care for long-term vitality.
“I eat them in macro bowls for a vinegary punch alongside rice and raw veggies, wrapped in pita with falafel, hummus, and grilled veggies, but they also make a scene-stealing side dish on any given holiday.” —Sasha
