Roasted Beets, Cabbage and Green Apples (a SCD friendly recipe)

I am a big fan of roastinganything.  I love to roast like some love to bake.  Peeling and chopping is oddly soothing to me.  And much like your seasoned baker, I find great satisfaction upon seeing the final product.  The transformation is more about the flavor than the look really, but what a grand transformation it is.  Have you ever tried a roasted beet?  It’s a beautiful thing, and not just the color I’m talking about here, oh that flavor.  And cabbage?  Delicious!  This dish was inspired by Valentine’s Day.  I call this an “any-time” dish.  I ate it for lunch, as a main dish, and a side dish and yes, a few eggs made this a great breakfast.  What a fun and healthy way to get a splash of vibrant red on the ever popular lovers Holiday (oh, and be sure to wear a nice big apron to cover your pretty clothes – beets are wonderful but so unforgiving).

Ingredients 
– 1 lb red beets, chopped (about 5)
– 11 oz green cabbage, sliced  (3/4 of small head of cabbage)
– 3 1/2 lbs of Granny Smith apples, chopped (3 extra large)
– 3 tablespoons oil (I use grapeseed)
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 teaspoon garlic granules

1.  Add beets, cabbage, apples, salt, oil and garlic granules to roasting pan of choice (I use a 4 QT glass Pyrex).
2.  Mix well
3.  Roast for 35 minutes 
4.  Mix and serve

Just love that beautiful color
