To top it all off, the super spice turmeric is used for taste and additional anti-inflammatory benefits.

Here is a breakdown of a few ingredients:

Beet Root:  The beautiful color is due to an antioxidant called betacyanin, best known for its cancer-fighting ability.  Historically, beets have been used medicinally for disorders of the liver.  Studies show that drinking beet root juice may even improve endurance performance!

Beet Greens:  Dare I say that I may like beet greens better than kale???  (I hope kale isn’t listening!)  They are bursting with nutrients, calcium, iron, vitamin A & C, and are a great source of folic acid, vitamin B6, phosphorus and magnesium.  Plus, they taste amazing simply sautéed with garlic or used raw as a wrap.

Turmeric:  Closely related to ginger root and has a warm yet spicy flavor with a distinct aroma.  Used medicinally since 3000 B.C.E and important in Ayurvedic medicine.  Curcumin, the antioxidant in turmeric is not only an anti-cancer agent,  it is SO incredibly powerful for decreasing inflammation in the body.  Studies show that it may even be comparable to over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen.

If you don’t have beet greens, don’t worry!  The hash can be served by itself or along side a frisee salad with a Dijon vinaigrette.  For those who aren’t vegan, a poached egg would pair nicely with the hash.
