I LOVE this recipe so much that I have to share with all of you. It has all the earmarks of being perfect for those with sickle cell, great root vegetables, easy to prepare, rich in thiocyanate. On top of that, it appeases both your sweet and salty palates, and gives you something to do with all those beets you bought. If you have the AllRecipes app, you can check it out HERE.
