Quinoa Grapefruit and Golden Beet Salad-2
I’m always on the lookout for new healthy recipes to make for my family. My friend, Kelly Pfeiffer who writes the food blog, Nosh and Nourish, just came out with a book  called Superfoods at Every Meal: Nourish Your Family with Quick and Easy Recipes Using 10 Everyday Superfoods. I have been so excited to have it on my shelf! Today I’m sharing Kelly’s crazy delicious recipe for Quinoa, Grapefruit and Golden Beet Salad from her book.

Years ago, when I first found out I was expecting my first baby, I realized something had to change. I was a veggie hater through and through. But I finally made the connection that it really did matter what I put into my body, especially as I was going to be growing a baby. Everything I ate, the baby would also be “eating.” The decision was easy, but implementing it was a little more difficult. It took a long time for me to get brave and try all these veggies I’d been avoiding all my life. As I sit here over a decade later, I can’t imagine a day without veggies. It may have taken a long time, but I am now a veggie lover. Healthy eating is important to me and I’ve made sure to make it a priority as I raise my kids, too. It requires constant adjustment dealing with different food preferences and all of that, but I think we’re winning the battles. It’s easier when I’m armed with really good recipes.

I love adding nutrient dense superfoods into our diet. This salad features kale, coconut oil, quinoa, and honey. I was interested in this salad for several reasons. First, I’m the hugest fan of quinoa salads. I haven’t met one I haven’t loved. Second, raw kale. Also LOVE. Third, the fruit and beets are roasted. Roasting really brings out the natural sweetness in fruits and veggies. Another win. And finally, the dressing really intrigued me. It has honey and molasses in it! Doesn’t that just sound amazing? I had to try it immediately.

Kelly’s book is full of creative, beautiful recipes that are healthy and nourishing. I have so many bookmarked to try! It’s nice to have a book on my shelf that shows me new, fun ways to eat superfoods. (She didn’t leave out dessert either!)

Usually at this time of year I start to feel bored with root veggies and citrus, but not this year! I can’t get enough. I love the way the grapefruit flavor deepened when it was roasted. It was so, so good with the earthy beets and sweet pear. And that dressing! The molasses added such great flavor. The kale is massaged with coconut oil which softens it up. Oh, I love raw kale salads. This is such a delicious salad. You must make it as soon as possible!

Quinoa, Grapefruit and Golden Beet Salad

Recipe from Superfoods at Every Meal, shared with permission by Fair Winds Press.

  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 golden beet, peeled and sliced
  • 1 pear, peeled and cubed
  • 1 grapefruit, peeled, sectioned and inner skins removed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon (14 g) coconut oil, melted
  • 4 cups (280 g) diced, de-stemmed kale
  • 3 cups (555 g) cooked quinoa
  • For dressing:
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon (20 g) molasses
  • 1 Tablespoon (20 g) honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

Instructions

  1. To make salad: Preheat oven to 400F (200C, or gas mark 6).
  2. Spread the beet slices, pear cubes, and grapefruit section in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and then sprinkle with the sea salt. Toss to coat. Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool on the baking sheet.
  3. Combine the coconut oil and kale in a large mixing bowl. Gently massage the oil into the kale leaves by hand for approximately 2 minutes. This helps reduce the bitterness and softened the texture of the kale. Add the beets, pears, grapefruit, and quinoa and toss gently to combine.
  4. To make the dressing: Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over the salad, toss to coat, and enjoy!

Notes

To make this vegan, use pure maple syrup in place of the honey.
