Robert's Story

I prefer my fresh produce al dente. Increase cooking times if desired.

Ingredients

3 large
fresh washed, peeled, quartered and sliced beets
1 bunch
broccoli washed and cut to bite size pieces
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ground cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp
salt
1/4 c
pure maple syrup or substitute sweetener
3 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Note: I consider a large beet 2 to 3 in. in diam. After preparing beets place in a 3 quart casserole dish. microwave on high for 5 minutes covered.
2
Add prepared broccoli over the top of the partially cooked beets. Sprinkle dry ingredients over the top. Pour slowly and evenly the olive oil and maple syrup on top. Microwave 5 minutes on high covered. Let rest for 2 minutes.
3
Using a large spoon lift the beets from the bottom of the dish and mix the beets and broccoli evenly. If you prefer a less al dente dish, cook, covered in the microwave for additional time. Microwaves vary, so cook times may need to be adjusted to suit your taste.
