  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp capers, fried

    Step 1

  • Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Meanwhile, arrange sliced beets on a serving platter.

    Step 2

    Recipe Tip

    To roast beets, preheat oven to 425°F. Drizzle beets with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Wrap each beet individually in a double layer of foil, folding and crimping edges to seal package. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until fork-tender.

The Beauty of Beets

Loaded with benefits, beets are impressive vegetables that are packed with essential nutrients! Though they often get a bad reputation for their bold flavor and vivid color, they can make a wonderful addition to a variety of meals. Get to know beets a little better by trying them in new, delicious ways.

In this deliciously simple recipe, the mild sweetness of roasted golden beets is complemented by leafy green arugula, sharp red onion and capers. Then, we add Success® Tri-Color Quinoa to balance everything out. While this dish is naturally vegan, If desired, add on goat cheese and roasted nuts for even more flavor and texture.

Originally made with thin slices of meat, this beet “carpaccio” is a great, meat-free appetizer or side dish!
