Crunchy Miso Beet Rice with Spinach and Egg

This Saturday (as in, yesterday) I woke up at 4:00am to make a 6:00am flight to spend a quick weekend visiting my parents in Florida.

While the weather hasn’t been ideal (although as I’m writing this, the sun is starting to peek out through the clouds,) it’s certainly been relaxing.

We’ve been playing board games, drinking wine, lounging, reading, taking long walks and just spending time together.

Indeed, I’ve been so relaxed, that I forgot to publish today’s post – so, I apologize for the delay!

Whenever I come down to Florida, I always say to myself: why don’t I live in a warm-weather climate?

It’s fun to dream about sitting outdoors, listening to the waves crashing and doing what I love: sharing my recipes with all of you.

Instead, I woke up this morning to an e-mail alert from JetBlue saying that my flight has been cancelled.

Womp womp.

Apparently it’s going to snow again, so I’m down here in Florida now until Tuesday.

For now, I get to live the dream! Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to eat spiralized rice – with a light miso dressing. The raw crunchiness of the beets combined with the umami flavors of the miso dressing is absolutely addictive!

And of course, everything is better with an egg on top. #putaneggonit

What I love about beet rice is that it’s a big nutritional bank for your buck – beets are high in antioxidants, folate, potassium and of course, they’re gorgeous in color. They’re also so hardy and provide ample dietary fiber.

This dish is perfect for a light lunch or, if you’re having it for dinner, add in some edamame beans or quinoa for more protein – you can even leave the egg out and add in some shrimp or chicken.

Once I get back to New Jersey, I can’t wait to make this for lunch. Until then, I’m going to enjoy this Floridian weather.

Oh My! Does this look deliscious!! My mouth is actually watering. And i can feel my body craving all the 'good for you' nutrients and minerals inside that beautiful purple-filled bowl. I cannot wait to give this a try. I have attempted butternut squash rice before but not beet rice. I have always wanted to but just never made the initial effort. Well, now, with this scrumptious recipe i have found the perfect excuse. It's time to spiralize!
This looks incredible!! I definitely haven't thought to try beets, next on my list. I spent all weekend doing zoodles and sweet potatoes, which I used in an egg bake today. I just discovered spiralizing and I am obsessed! =) Jill Latest Post: Spiral into Fit - I Spiralized Every Meal For a Day!
Mmm this looks delicious! I need to look into making it! Thanks!
Anna says:
Is the egg included in the nutritional info? If so, you forgot to add it to the ingredient list! I'm planning to make this for my post-work snack! This will be my first time spiralizing a beet- wish me luck!
How healthy and delicious! I have to give these miso, beet and egg bowls a try in my kitchen.
Anna says:
I made this for a snack and it was delicious! When I was buying beets the cashier was telling me that the leafs are very good for you. After some googling I decided to use them in place of the spinach here. It was delicious! They are more similar to kale than spinach. I loved the idea of using the whole veggie in one dish!
Natalie says:
Beet Rice has become one of my favorite rices! Thank you for "turning me on" to all the great ways to make rice from veggies!
Ali Maffucci says:
Thank you for trying my recipes!!
Monique says:
I just made this but poured the dressing over roasted beet noodles. OMG I think I have a new addiction to beets now! Amazing!!!
redpepperflakes says:
Hi! Just bought a spiralizer and I'm looking forward to making this recipe. Just wanted to clarify - is the beet raw?
Jamie says:
We made this with a few alterations - we left the beets in ribbons and cooked them a little, and added rotisserie chicken. The miso dressing is ABSOLUTELY phenomenal. The whole recipe is insanely delicious. Highly recommend.

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
