I love beets. I've done this recipe shredded and spiralized. Beets are just very firm so I find the longer I marinate the better. I pulled this recipe from Gone Raw and sometimes adjust the amounts because this is turns out to be a lot.
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons raw honey or agave nectar
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne, optional
sea salt, to taste
3 cups shredded or spiralized beets
3 cups shredded or spiralized carrots
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
Mix first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Check seasonings. Add beets, carrots and parsley. Toss to combine. Let marinate 2 hours, if desired.
