Peel the beets and pulse in food processor until finely grated
Place grated beets in a colander and squeeze as much liquid out of them as possible, like, really squeeze them well.
Bring rice to a boil in 3/4 c salted water. Cover, reduce to simmer until rice is cooked and water is absorbed.
Use food processor again to pulse onion, garlic, black beans and prunes.
Combine everything in a bowl by hand mixing: beets, bean mixture, rice, seasonings and oat flour.
