Ingredients

  • Gluten-free nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 small beets , trimmed and scrubbed
  • 1 large sweet potato , peeled and diced into ¼-½ inch cubes
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil , divided use
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 5 ounces baby spinach , roughly chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper , seeded and diced
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • ½ cup sliced scallions (white and light green parts)
  • ¼ cup pitted and chopped dates
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh mint
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove , crushed
  • Big pinch sea salt
  • ½ ripe avocado , pitted and diced
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs , peeled and chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spray a large rectangle of foil with cooking spray.
  • Place the beets on the foil. Place a second sheet of foil over the beets and crimp the top and bottom sheets together to make a sealed packet.
  • Place on a baking sheet and roast for 50 minutes. Allow the beets to cool, but keep the oven set to 400ºF.
  • Arrange the sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with cumin and chili powder. Toss to coat.
  • Roast for 15 minutes. Turn with a spatula and roast for 10-15 minutes more, until tender. Cool.
  • When the beets are cool enough to handle, gently rub them to peel off the skins. Dice into ¼-½ pieces.
  • Add the spinach to a large bowl along with beets, sweet potatoes, bell pepper, chickpeas, scallions, and dates.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil with the mint, lemon juice, garlic and salt. Pour over the salad and toss to coat. Gently fold in the avocado.
  • Divide among serving bowls and top each with an equal amount of chopped egg.
