1 ½ cups of root vegetables, cut into in ½’ dice (we used sweet potatoes and butternut squash) 1 tbsp olive oil Pinch of salt Sliced red onion
For the salad 4 cups of arugula Supreme 2 blood oranges Shaved ginger Raw red onion
For the beets 4 small beets 3 tbsp olive oil Pinch of salt
For the dressing 1 tbsp.Chai Pear Element Shrub 2 tbsp. olive oil 1 tbsp. blood orange juice Pinch of salt 1 tbsp of the olive oil that the beets were cooked in
Preheat the oven to 400°F In a cast iron pan and toast the walnuts in the salt, maple syrup and cayenne over a medium heat for 2 -3 minutes.
Put the diced root vegetables in a roasting pan and drizzle the olive oil over them, stir them to make sure they’re covered with the oil. Roast the vegetables for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally to stop them from sticking.
In the meantime wash and dry the arugula and lay it on a large platter.
Make the dressing. Combine the shrub with the oil and whisk until it is emulsified. Place the toasted walnuts on top of the leaves. Then add the roasted root vegetables.
Arrange the blood oranges on top of salad. Pour over the dressing over the salad and serve.

Marinate Korean-style beef short ribs in One Culture Foods Chinese Fermented Black Bean Sauce for at least 2-3 hours, ideally overnight either in a shallow pan or a plastic ziploc bag. The ziploc is preferable because it allows you to get the maximum amount of coverage with the least amount of space
Heat a pan to medium or start a grill
Pour a little oil on a paper towel and rub it onto the pan or grill grates
Put ribs onto the heat and do not move for 4-5 minutes

Cook on the other side for another 2-4 minutes depending on the char preference
Finish with a drizzle of sesame oil and garnish with diced scallions
