Blood-Nourishing Beet Bowl | 补血烤甜菜根碗

In this bowl, Samanha Kloss, a licensed acupuncturist in Colorado, talks about her use of roasted beets. Here, beets are served alongside the steamed beet greens, and paired with sweet potatoes, jade pearl rice, a fried egg, and sesame garlic tahini sauce.

In Chinese medicine (TCM), beets are used as a blood “tonic,” thus, they help the body to build blood. Dark leafy greens, such as beet greens, as well as eggs, and black sesame seeds, and avocado, are also viewed as foods that can help nourish the fluids and also help support blood production.
