Ingredients
  1. 1 Beet
  2. 1 Bulb of Fennel
  3. Couple sprigs of Parsley
  4. Couple Shakes of Sesame Seeds
  5. Juice of 1/2 lemon
  6. Couple Glugs of Olive Oil
  7. A Pinch of Himalayan Salt
  8. A cap full of apple cider vinegar.
Instructions
  1. I'm not saying it in the ingredients, but you should be using organic ingredients.
  2. Slice the beets thin, I did about a quarter inch thick.
  3. Place them in a sauce pan and just cover with water.
  4. Steam until tender.
  5. Cut the fennel thinly on the bias and remove any hard heart. Separate everything nicely.
  6. Dress the fennel in a bowl with the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, parsley, and sesame seeds.
  7. Add the warm sliced beets and toss everything together.
  8. You are now ready to plate!
Notes
  1. The sweetness of the beets is offset by the acid in the lemon and vinegar. The softness of the beets are offset by the crispness of the fennel. Opposition is the key to creative cooking! Enjoy:)
