Beet and Carrot Casserole

This is one of the first recipes Yogi Bhajan gave us. This dish is cleansing to the liver and the digestive tract. To help your body do its own inner cleaning, eat it as a mono diet for one week in the Spring or Fall.

Ingredients:

2 bunches scallions, chopped 
3 cloves garlic, minced 
Ghee or vegetable oil 
1 bunch beets 
1 lb. carrots 
Soy sauce or Tamari 
Ground black pepper 
1 lb. grated cheese (optional)

Directions:

Scrub beets and carrots. Steam beets whole. Don’t cut off roots or stems. After about 15-20 minutes, add carrots. Steam until tender but firm. Then remove outer peels from beets and carrots. Grate using a coarse grater. Keep beets and carrots separate to preserve their distinct colors.

Sauté scallions and garlic in oil or ghee until tender. Toss with beets and carrots and black pepper. Place in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with Soy sauce or Tamari. Cover with grated cheese and broil until cheese is melted and golden. Serves 4-6.
