Beetroot is ideal in a salad, as a side dish, or as a soup for a starter. There’s no shortage of ways to enjoy this wonderful vegetable.

Your beetroot salad can taste even better if you let the flavors marinate for a day. You can also prepare enough beetroot salad to last for the week, eating a portion with every meal. Add nuts when serving for a crunchy addition to this healthy side dish.

Beetroots and your health

Beetroot contains folic acid, manganese, copper, iron, potassium, fiber, and magnesium. It is full of antioxidants too, and may even have anti-inflammatory properties. It is a great addition to a balanced diet. We use fresh red beetroot in this recipe, although if you’re pressed for time, store-bought beetroot can be used as well. Herbs and cinnamon are added to give a fresh and warm taste.
