Beets are a scary ingredient. For starters, red beets stain everything and anything in their path — your counters, wooden cutting boards, kitchen towels and hands.
When dealing with juicy beets, it’s important to prepare for a mess. Have paper towels and un-stainable surfaces ready. Given their shape, beets are also tricky to peel and prep for the spiralizer. Use caution and be patient.
Here is what you’ll need…
- 3 raw beets, spiralized
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 cups baby spinach or arugula, chopped
- 2 ounces goat cheese
- ½ cup toasted nuts (pine nuts, pepitas, almonds, or pistachios work well)
