Serves: 2


  • 3 Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp. salt, divided
  • 2 medium golden beets
  • 1 cup red or white quinoa
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1⁄2 cup canned garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1⁄4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. curry powder


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss Brussels sprouts with 1 tablespoon oil and 1⁄2 teaspoon salt. Bake for 15 minutes, or until caramelized.
  • Wrap beets in aluminum foil, and bake until fork tender, about 40 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, and rub the skins off with a paper towel. Slice beets, and reserve.
  • Meanwhile, wash quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. Place in a medium saucepan with chicken broth over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and cover. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn the heat off, and let steam for 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Reserve.
  • Divide Brussels sprouts, beets, quinoa, and garbanzo beans between 2 bowls. Stir the Greek yogurt together with turmeric, cumin, curry powder, and remaining salt in a small bowl. Drizzle over the bowl. Serve immediately.
