Ingredients
  • 3 medium beets, washed and wrapped in foil
  • ½ red onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups brown rice, rinsed and cooked according to directions
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 can, full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 scoops Genuine Health fermented organic gut superfoods+
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Optional Topping:
  • Handful of hemp seeds
  • Handful of fresh dill, chopped
  • Drizzle of olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Roast foil-wrapped beets 1 hour
  3. While beets are roasting, dice onion and add to pot of rice to cook (I used short-grain brown rice, but you can use whatever you have on hand)
  4. Boil rice, water and onion according to your rice’s directions
  5. When rice is finished cooking, leave lid on for a minimum of 10 minutes to allow rice to soak up all the moisture
  6. Unwrap slightly cooled beets (no need to peel), cut into quarters and add to blender along with coconut milk, lime juice, fermented superfood powder, salt, pepper and blend until smooth
  7. Fluff rice/onion mixture and add to large bowl. Pour in roasted beet/coconut sauce and stir until evenly combined.
  8. Serve immediately. Garnish with hemp seeds, fresh dill or drizzle of olive oil or add to casserole dish for reheating later.
