  1. START PREP: Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  • Place red beets and bell pepper in a medium bowl. Drizzle with about 1½ tablespoons cooking oil. Season with about ¼ teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper. Stir to coat.
  • Juice half a lemon. Mix vegetable broth and lemon in small bowl and set aside.


  1. ROAST BEETS & BELL PEPPER: Spread beets and bell pepper out in a single layer on a lightly oiled, foil-lined baking sheet. Roast 18-22 minutes, or until beets are tender, stirring halfway through.

  • Heat about 1½ tablespoons cooking oil in a medium nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add salmon to hot pan, skin-side down. Sear 4-5 minutes on each side, or until salmon is fully cooked. Transfer salmon to a cutting board.


  1. SAUTÉ KALE: Heat about 1 tablespoon cooking oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add kale, walnuts, and 1-2 tablespoons water to hot pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 2-3 minutes, or until kale has wilted and walnuts are lightly toasted, stirring occasionally.
