Cut the beet into a small dice so that it cooks quickly. Put it into a small pot with a bit of water and a sprinkle of salt. Bring the water to a boil on medium-high heat, covered, and let the beets cook until they’re soft and sweet. That’ll take about 15-20 minutes, depending on how small the beet pieces are. Or for a sweeter flavor, you could toss them with a bit of olive oil and roast them in the oven at 400 F for about 20-30 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop the zucchini and kale. You can either sprinkle them with salt and massage them until they soften, or put them in for a few minutes at the end of the beet’s cooking time.
Toss the edamames or peas in with the beets for a few minutes to heat them up. Then, you can either make a bed of massaged kale and zucchini to top with the beets and peas and drizzle with dressing – or toss all of the vegetables together in the pot with some dressing and place on plates.
