Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cook the wild rice according to the package directions. Add the turmeric to the cooking water and mix well.

Poke holes in the beets using a fork. Place the beets on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes then increase the heat to 400 degrees F and roast for another 25 minutes or until beets are tender.

Remove the beets from the oven, and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Peel and dice each beet into ½ inch pieces. 

In a large bowl, combine the cooked wild rice, beets, snap peas, pineapple, cilantro, sea salt and pepper. Add the San-J Orange Sauce and cayenne pepper; toss to combine. Garnish with the sesame seeds and serve immediately.
