MAKES 4 SERVINGS • PREP TIME: 10 minutes 

Beets are the power player here; they contain natural nitrates that the body turns into nitric oxide, which in turn expands the walls of blood vessels and increases blood and oxygen flow to benefit the brain and other parts of the body. (The Romans used beets as an aphrodisiac. Enough said.)

Slaw Ingredients:

  • 4 Carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1 large or 2 small Red or Golden Beets, peeled and shredded
  • 1/4 cup Raisins
  • Generous Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Tahini Dressing
  • 1/4 cup Pistachios, toasted
  • 4 Tbs Mint or Basil, chopped

Instructions:

Combine the carrots, beets, and raisins in a shallow serving bowl and toss with a pinch of salt. Drizzle in the dressing and toss until evenly coated. Top with the pistachios and fresh herbs before serving.

STORAGE: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days

 

Lemon Tahini Dressing Ingredients:

MAKES ABOUT 1/4 CUP • PREP TIME: 5 minutes  

Tahini is a sesame paste, available in any supermarket, and a major player in hummus. It’s so easy to work with that this whole dressing comes together with nothing more than a fork, a little warm water, some lemon juice, and couple of spices. I use tahini for the taste, but your body will love it for its high healthy fat and mineral content including zinc, which is important in learning and brain development.

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons warm water, plus more as needed
  • Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Instructions:

Put the tahini, lemon juice, salt, maple syrup, cumin, cinnamon, and cayenne in a small bowl and mix with a spoon into a smooth paste. Slowly pour in the warm water, whisking all the while and continue whisking until you’ve achieved a thick but pourable dressing. If more water is needed, add a teaspoon at a time. Season with pepper if desired.

STORAGE: Store in the refrigerator for about a week. The dressing thickens as it sits, so you may need to add more water to thin.
