From the Vitality Food Feature ‘ODE TO THE NAVY BEAN‘.

(Makes about 3 cups)


  • 1 medium beet
  • 2 cups of cooked navy beans
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon (about 1-1/2 Tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Dash of sea salt

1) Preheat oven to 400F. Wash beet well and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

2) Bring up the sides of paper and fold to make a packet, leaving room for heat to circulate inside the packet.

3) Bake for 50 minutes, or until beet is tender when poked with a knife.

4) Remove skin from the beet, and chop beet into small pieces. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth.
