Cooking Time



  • 3-4 medium-sized beets, peeled and cut into 1/4-1/2" wedges
  • 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon warm water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • about 6 cups of kale, torn into small pieces (I used a mix of leafy purple kale and baby kale)
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon pepitas
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds


  1. Toss the beets with other ingredients to coat, and spread onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 425°F for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  2. Combine the tahini, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and water in a small bowl. Whisk in the olive oil, and stir in salt.
  3. Massage about 2 tablespoons of dressing into kale - rubbing the dressing into the leaves for just a few minutes - which softens the kale fibers and makes it more easily digestible. Add remaining dressing and mix through. Top with roasted beets and mixed seeds, and serve.
