few handfuls of arugula

1 egg

1/2 cup cooked spelt

3/4 cup cooked beets, chopped (I steamed mine..roasting works too)

1/2 cup cooked beet greens

1/2 cup tempeh

1 oz gouda cheese

1-2 tsp toasted sesame oil

balsamic vinegar

fresh basil

garlic clove, minced (optional)

ground red pepper (for spicy factor, optional)

1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)

avocado (optional)



Fry an egg or two in toasted sesame oil, garlic (optional), and a dash of balsamic vinegar. Set aside

Rinse a few handfuls of local arugula, place in bowl

Top arugula with cooked beets, tempeh + spelt* (add nutritional yeast now, optional)

-*I cooked the spelt in a rice cooker and threw in the chopped beets about 15 minutes before the grain was ready. I threw in the beet greens, tempeh, garlic, and ground red pepper when all was done, stirred then let sit for 5-10 minutes. The heat cooked the rest just right.

Top with fried egg

then gouda and fresh basil
