This recipe doesn’t use exact measurements. It’s a loose recipe, depending on how much someone wants to make.

Ingredients
Spinach
Beets
Asparagus
Goat cheese
Pine nuts
Balsamic glaze
Sesame seeds

Instructions
Sauté the asparagus over medium heat with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. They will cook in just about 5–7 minutes.

Peel the beets. Add to a pot with enough water to cover and some lemon juice (to prevent bleeding). Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 30–40 minutes, until you can stick a knife in them easily. Slice them in quarters or rounds.

Combine all ingredients and drizzle with olive oil, balsamic glaze and add salt and pepper to taste.
