Beauty and the Beets Balsamic Potatoes and Steamed Veggie Dinner

Welcome to Meatless Monday…one of my favorite posts of the week. Today is also the start of a new giveaway – a $25 gift card to Publix, courtesy of the fine folks over at the 2016 Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon. The race is taking place on April 2 this year and I am one of the lucky ambassadors for the race! Registration is still open and you can save $10 off your entry fee with the code BEETS10.


The race is going to be a lot of fun- I am preparing for the race by not only running , but also trying to eat better so I will be healthy and ready to set a new PR (personal record time) there. I’ve had a lot of help in the eating better part with recipes from my Forks Over Knives class.

Roasted Herb Tomatoes Beauty and the Beets

I used to roast our veggies with oil and we loved them that way. However, in the class I have been learning how to prepare veggies without oil – I have been using veggie broth instead of the oil and the difference is unbelievable. Roasting veggies is even better without oil. One of my favorite recipes was this one for Slow Roasted Herb Tomatoes. We made these one night as a side dish while preparing a healthy dinner with the best produce from Publix, of course. Publix provided me with a gift card to make this healthy meal and gave me an extra $25 gift card to send to one of you guys!

Steamed veggies and potatoes Beauty and the Beets

Another way I have been learning to prepare veggies is by steaming them. Mr. Beet and I invested in this steamer ($19 on Amazon) and we have been using it almost everyday since. Steaming is so easy and healthy.

To go with our Slow Roasted Herb Tomatoes, I steamed some fresh asparagus and baby carrots.

However, the main dish for our healthy Publix dinner were the Steamed Balsamic Potatoes. Only 30 minutes in the steamer, then tossed in a Balsamic Vinaigrette, these were by far the most delicious potatoes I have ever made.

I think the most fun I have had with the steamer is making yummy sauces and dressings for the veggies. I will be posting many more easy recipes using steamed veggies in the very near future!
