3 large beets peeled and cubed
1-4 c water
1 TBS sesame seeds
1 TBS soy sauce or Braggs Aminos
Combine in a round 8 inch earthenware casserole dish. I like because deep and beets stay bathed in the sauce while cooking. Cover with foil. Bake 350 about an hour or until tender when poked with fork.
Combine when cool with:
2c diced oranges (deseeded Valencia or Navel)
Make pesto:
2c arugula
2T olive oil
1T whole-grain mustard
2T flavored balsamic vinegar
2T chopped walnuts opt.
Combine pesto ingredients only in small cuisinart for 3 min.
Spread a crusty piece of bread with pesto. Top with beet and orange mixture.
