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.
