Cut the beets in cubes with the garlic and onion and toss with some ghee or coconut oil (or any oil/fat you like to roast with). Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for up to 40 minutes. Check them once or twice to toss them about and see if they’re done.

The pesto recipe:

  • 1 bunch cilantro (if you don’t like cilantro use another fresh herb or green — basil, dill, kale, beet greens, or fennel greens for example)
  • Olive oil (just enough to make it pesto-like)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup hemp seeds
  • salt to taste

Puree it all up in a food processor and put it over the already cooked beets. Toss it up. That’s all!

Eating wholesome whole real food is important for body/mind/spirit health and well-being. I’ve written a lot about my adventure with diet and healing here:  Nutrition and gut health, Mental health and diet
