  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup aqua fava (the liquid in can of chickpeas)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Coat beets with olive oil, salt & pepper. Roast for 50 minutes or until they are soft to fork

Notes

*To cook the beets, cut off any tops, scrub the roots clean, lightly drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Wrap with tin foil, roast in oven at 400 degrees for 50 minutes. The skin should be easy to peel off if its fully cooked- if not, put it back in the oven for a little longer.
