Beet Carpaccio with Marinated Bean Salad

Clean Beet Carpaccio with Marinated Bean Salad

Inspired by Jamie Oliver’s recipe for Beef Carpaccio with Marinated Bean Salad featured in Jamie at Home, you can swap the beef for beets and added some toasted pine nuts for protein to create a beautiful and nutritious treat. This works great as a healthy appetizer or served with a non-gluten grain or starch for a cleanse-friendly meal option.

serves 4
ingredients
• 4 medium beets or carpaccio – depending on your mood
• 1/2 pound green or mixed beans, trimmed
• 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts – optional
• 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
• 2 shallots, finely chopped
• 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
• 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
• 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
• sea salt
• freshly ground pepper
preparation:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Wash beets well and remove green tops if necessary. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and place the beets in the pan. Coat them with a tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Cover the beets with aluminum foil, place in the oven to roast for about an hour or until tender. Beets are done once they can be easily speared with a fork. Remove from oven and let cool. Alternatively, if you have a steamer or steam extension, you could steam the beets for about 40 minutes, or until soft.Meanwhile, mix the shallots in a large bowl with the parsley, mustard and vinegar. Slowly whisk in the rest of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. Add the beans and let them cook for about 3 minutes. You just want to blanche the beans, not cook them through, so that they stay firm and beautifully bright green. Remove beans from the water and add them to the marinade. Once the beets have cooled, slice them as thin as you like, season with salt and pepper and arrange in a single layer over 4 large plates. Top with green beans, spooning any leftover
