As you are well aware, Beets are one of the foods rich in thiocyanate, a protein that helps prevents cells from clumping together. Beets aren't my favorite thing to eat, but this recipe has me going back for seconds.
Besides making the veggies mush, overcooking can leach out all the nutrients, flavor, and health benefits of the vegetables, and leave you with soggy veggies. Check out this recipe for crispy and steamed vegetables.
I chose this recipe because of the Lentils and Squash, which are high in thiocyanate and great for sickle cell patients. I usually substitute regular lettuce or spinach instead of the arugula, just because spinach is my go-to green leafy veggie.
