For more, visit ANTIOXIDANT-PACKED KALE AND BEET SALAD DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 2. Peel and chop beets. Place beets in a baking dish and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil. If desired, also season lightly with black pepper and salt. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Flip beets and bake, uncovered, for an additional 15 to 20 minutes. 3. Boil quinoa in 1 cup broth. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. 4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add garlic and season with paprika. Sauté for 30 seconds. Add remaining broth and kale, and sauté for 10 minutes. As needed, add additional broth in 1-tablespoon increments, so kale remains moist while cooking. Stir in quinoa, and season with salt and pepper, to taste. 5. Plate sautéed kale and quinoa. Top with roasted beets and serve immediately.
