I love leftovers! I made some delicious beet burgers and used the prepared leftover ingredients to make this very simple and flavorful salad. Did I mention how incredibly healthy it is? Serve as a side salad or even as a main dish with some nuts thrown in if you like. Enjoy!
Spicy Lentils with Grated Beets:
1 large beet, peeled, washed and and grated
1 cup cooked green lentils
1 TBS chipotle flavored olive oil or olive oil plus 1/4 tsp chipotle powder
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium sized bowl, mix the grated beets and the cooked lentils.
Drizzle on the chipotle oil or the olive oil and chipotle powder if you are using it.
Salt and pepper to taste, stir to combine and serve.
