Instructions
  1. Scrub the beets to remove any dirt. Place them in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover. Heat the water over high until it begins to boil, then reduce heat to low and cook until the beets are soft to the touch (30-45 minutes). They should give a little when you push on them with your thumb, but they should not be squishy.
  2. Remove the beets from the pot and let them cool completely. Meanwhile, slice the cucumber into thin slices. Cube or slice the avocado and cut up the blood orange. If using rice as a base, cook rice.
  3. Peel the cooled beets and slice them into small cubes. Mix together the mirin, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Pour the marinade over the beets and toss thoroughly to coat. Season the beets with salt to taste. Allow the beets to marinate for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Assemble the bowl: place kale or rice on the bottom. Layer the beets, cucumber, avocado, and blood orange on top. Sprinkle with more salt (if desired) and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
