  • 5 medium size beets
  • 2 Tablespoons safflower oil
  • 1 head endive, washed and rinsed
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup walnuts

Dijon Vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast

  1. Preheat oven to 400º.
  2. Wash and dry beets. Cut off the tips and ends.
  3. Place beets in foil, drizzle with safflower oil and seal foil tightly.
  4. Cook beets for 45 minutes until soft. Remove from oven and let cool.
  5. Once cooled, peel beets by rubbing with a paper towel. Cut into bite size pieces.
