Beet Balls and Celery “U‘s ”

This title and dish is just a cute idea for a beet sald. When you cook vegan without any wheat or nightshades, sometimes it’s the presentation that is going to make something different rather than the ingredients.

This dish is wonderful for vegans who are feeling a little iron deficient because beets are the best meat substitute as far as iron goes. The pomegrante juice as well is full of iron. So, if you find yourself craving a steak and don’t want to eat meat, try this salad instead.


2 Beets, roasted at 180C for 1 1/2 hours
2 celery stalks
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tspn balsamic vinegar
1/2 tspn pomegrante concentrate

When the beets cool, peel them and put them in a sandwich bag. With a melon baller scoop the beets into balls and place in a bowl.
Chop the celery into “U’s” and mix in with the beet balls.

Mix in the dressing and serve.

This dish looks especially nice next to the yellow and green quinoa.

Serves 4.
