I am always looking for ways to make beets taste delightful – they are so packed with health benefiting properties!
Beets support the liver. We all know how much the modern-day liver must deal with in terms of environmental toxins, medications and food additives. Giving this important organ support offers a big boost in how we feel, and beets are one of the very best foods for this purpose.
If we are living with any type of autoimmune disorder it is important to remember that all of the organs and systems in the body are interconnected. When we eat foods to heal the liver, we are helping our entire body heal, since the liver is such a key player in the overall function of the body.
This dish makes an excellent mid-winter lunch or dinner, and also works as a tasty side dish.
3 or 4 organic beets
3 large, organic yams
1 organic sweet onion
1 Tablespoon Curry powder (can be straight ground curry, or if you have a mixture you like, that works)
3 Tablespoons Turmeric (the SUPER spice)
1 Tablespoon sea salt
1 cup organic basmati rice, soaked (soak rice for 24 hours, rinsing and changing water halfway through)
1 can organic Coconut Milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Peel beets and yams and cut them into cubes. Cut onion into strips.
Place beets, yams and onions on large glass baking dish and drizzle generously with melted ghee. Sprinkle with sea salt. Place in oven and roast, stirring occasionally, for an hour.
Forty minutes later, place drained rice and coconut milk, along with two cups of water, into a sauce pan or rice cooker to cook. If using sauce pan, bring mixture to a boil, then cover and turn to low heart.
When veggies are done roasting, melt 2 tablespoons ghee slowly in large cast iron pan on low heat, stirring in turmeric and curry powder. Stir constantly until a nice paste is formed.
Place roasted veggies into the pan, and turn heat to medium. Stir veggies to coat with paste.
Place almost all the way cooked coconut rice into cast iron mixture. It is good if it still has a moistness, even a little wet still.
Stir in well and fry together with veggies for seven to ten minutes, continuing to stir.
Your liver will thank you.
