Veggie of the Week: Beets!
I know beets can feel like a fall veggie, but these beautiful treats are available all summer long. Try this recipe for a roasted beet and quinoa salad that will have your mouth watering and fulfill your craving for a light summer dinner.
 
Roasted Beet and Quinoa Salad
 
-1 bunch red beets, remove greens and chop into cubes
-1 bunch green onions, chopped
-1/2 cup parsley, chopped coarsley
-6oz feta cheese crumbles
-Juice of 1/2 lemon
-1 tbsp olive oil
-Salt and pepper to taste
-1 cup quinoa, cooked
 
Preheat oven to 400. On a baking sheet, coat chopped beets in olive oil, salt, and pepper and roast in oven for approximately 20 minutes or until tender. Chop green onions and parsley, set aside. Once beets are removed from the oven and have cooled, combine beets, green onions, parsley, feta crumbles, lemon juice, and quinoa. Add salt and pepper and mix it all up in a large bowl. Enjoy!
