Moroccan Roasted Beet Salad with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds

Moroccan Oven Roasted Beet Salad Recipe with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds | Healthy, Gluten-Free Side Dish Since this month’s wellness challenge theme is all about natural ways to love the skin you’re in, I thought I’d dedicate February to dishes that will help you eat yourself pretty.

Whenever I’m feeling rundown and in need of a detox (and don’t feel like going off of these bad boys for an extended period of time), the first ingredient I turn to is the bodacious beet.

Fresh pomegranate for my Moroccan Beet Salad with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds Moroccan Beet Salad with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds Moroccan Oven Roasted Beet Salad with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds Beets contain a lot of great ingredients for helping the liver detoxify itself. They’re high in antioxidants, as hinted at by their amazing color, and contain pectin, which is a fiber that flushes out the toxins that the liver removes so they aren’t reabsorbed by the body.

Bad skin is often a sign of liver trouble, since when toxins aren’t being evacuated properly via your internal organs, they tend to take an exist ramp via your face. For this reason, my roasted beet salad is the best dish to have you at your prettiest by Valentine’s Day.

Moroccan Roasted Beet Salad with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Serving Size: 4

Moroccan Roasted Beet Salad with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches beets (about 8 medium), trimmed and rinsed
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice (use regular lemon if you can’t find)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Divide the beets between 2 pieces of foil (about 1-foot long each). Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Wrap tightly in the foil so no air is release. Place in a baking dish and roast until fork-tender, about 1 hour. Carefully open the foil and allow to rest until cool enough to touch. Slip the skins off with your fingers. Cut the beets into wedges and add to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Toss the beets with the cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, lemon juice, and cilantro.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the almonds and pomegranate seeds.

Notes

The beets can be roasted up to a week in advance. The whole dish can be assembled three days in advance. Just omit the cilantro so it keeps better.

    Funny, I always boil beets because it never occured to me to roast ’em. But they lose so much of their color in the water, this must be the better way. Is there anything you can use besides foil though? Personally I don’t think it’s healthy to use – is parchment OK?

    Beautiful photos and tasty sounding recipe. I love beets prepared any way, shape or form. Cilantro with beets is new for me, can’t wait to try it!

    You look like you have an eating disorder. Have you struggled with your weight in the past?

    • I think there are very few women out there who can say they’ve made it through life with a purely uncomplicated relationship to their body, but I’ve been lucky enough to never have had an eating disorder, and have a pretty healthy relationship with food at present. Thank you for your concern.

      Sorry to butt in here, but I am rather astonished that you would ask such a question to anyone. Seriously. Luckily Phoebe is mature and classy enough to not have told you how inappropriate and rude this was. I’m sorry, but just couldn’t scroll by. I thoroughly enjoy her beautiful posts and recipes and do hope you could consider your words more carefully when commenting.

      In hope,
      Holly
