I adore evenings where I can sit out on someone’s deck, and talk over good food. I also enjoy having to whip up something that is both healthful and creative, as I tend to like simple foods, with minimal ingredients. That being said, I always surprise myself when I am forced out of my comfort zone, and have to prepare something not only tastes good, but is colorful, and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Behold this elegant summer recipe!
Golden Sprout Pasta Salad
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and wrap, 4 washed golden beets, in tin foil. Place in oven for 40 minutes.
While your beets are roasting, use a serrated peeler to slice 2 zucchinis into “spaghetti” strips
Add 1-2 cups spinach
1 tbsp garlic infused olive oil
1 handful alfalfa sprouts
1/4 cup yellow onion
1/4 cup soaked sun dried tomatoes
When beets are tender, allow to cool for 10 minutes and peel with a carrot peeler. Chop into cubes.
Toss all of your ingredients together. Sea Salt to taste. Add chopped chives for decoration.
