Yesterday I was on the quest to add something new to our lunches, different kinds of sides. This time I picked fresh beets and adorable bunapi mushrooms, how about that?
Beets are highly nutritious and “cardiovascular health” friendly root vegetables. Certain unique pigment antioxidants present in this plant have found to offer protection against coronary artery disease and stroke, lower cholesterol levels in the body and have anti-aging effects.
Bunapi mushroom is highly nutritious mushroom, good source of: vitamins B1, B2, B3, magnesium, potassium, protein, iron, other minerals and beta-glucans.
Fresh Bunapi mushrooms
Sesame chilli oil
Fresh ground peppercorns
With beets I wanted to make nice warm salad and for the mushrooms, just pan fried with nice oil, sesame-chili, simple but super tasty.
I preboiled the beets for 8 minutes or so.
Give them shower with cold water and peel.
Dressed them up with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, garlic cloves, salt and pepper.
Put the beets in the nicely heated oven on 400F and bake for 20 minutes.
In the meantime on the hot pan stir fry mushrooms for a 5 minutes top.
Season with salt, pepper, lemon and sesame chili oil.
They are absolutely delicious.
When beets are done they will have slightly crispy edges, great texture. Squeeze the garlic from the peeling and spritz with balsamic vinaigrette.
Very quick to make and ready to eat as moment vegetables are done. Healthy, flavors are amazing. Have a good lunch:)
