  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Rice Pilaf

  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground thyme
  • 1/t tsp ground sage

Optional: 2 cups chopped kale, stems removed


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. While the oven is heating, peel the beets, cut them into quarters, and then cut them into 1/4-inch size slices.
  3. Transfer the beets to a mixing bowl, prepare the carrots, and add them to the bowl.
  4. Toss the vegetables in olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  5. Lay the vegetables out onto a baking sheet, place in the oven, and roast for about 30 minutes or until lightly roasted, tender, and easy to poke through with a fork.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare your rice pilaf by chopping the onion and mincing the garlic.
  7. In a medium stovetop pot, add the olive oil and set the heat to medium-high.
  8. Once hot, add in the onion and garlic, cooking for about 3-4 minutes.
  9. Then, add in the rice and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
  10. Add in the vegetable broth, paprika, thyme, and sage. Cover the pot with a lid.
  11. Bring the rice to a boil.
  12. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is fully cooked. If the rice is too sticky, add about 1/4 – 1/2 cup more water. Stir occasionally.
  13. Prepare the kale.
