This colorful beet fried rice is made by stir-frying diced beets with coconut oil, curry paste, and spices, and then crisping them in the pan with cooked rice. Stir-fried vegetables and/or protein can be added to make it a meal!
I thought you’d like a little break from Thanksgiving-y comfort food. But this beet fried rice is still very autumn appropriate! And I definitely won’t stop you from serving it at Thanksgiving if you’re going the non-traditional route :).
Kind of like how I don’t always feel like soaking and blending raw cashews, sometimes I am just not in the mood to spend an hour roasting whole beets. I figured I would see what happened if I cut the beets into tiny cubes and stir-fried them in coconut oil, and it turns out that I LOVE cooking them this way. They get juicy and sweet but still maintain some bite. Combining them with crisped fried rice and a curry and citrus sauce, I think I’m pretty close to beetroot heaven.
