We did it! Our very own beets from our garden! I love beets, but get stuck making the same dishes over and over. I decided to try something new, and I sure am glad that I did! If you aren’t here for the paleo version, stir in some crumbled goat cheese for a treat!
3 medium beets – peeled and diced into 1/2 inch chunks
1 small red onion – cut into thin strips
1 tsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup quinoa
1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Stirring frequently, sauté onion for 5 minutes or until it begins to caramelize.
2. Add apple cider vinegar and stir to deglaze the pan for about one minute.
3. Add beets, chicken stock, and quinoa. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer while stirring occasionally until all liquid is absorbed and quinoa is cooked.
