So, I’ve started recently to get Riverford Organic vegetable deliveries and whilst I love the element of surprise, I do something have that, ‘Err, what do I do with these?’ feeling that comes about with random veges that I wouldn’t normally pick up from the supermarket myself.
Kale? Turnips? More leeks than I care to imagine? Beetroot?
Well, this week, my challenge was to use raw beetroot and I found the most delightful recipe which I have converted. Whether you roast it whole, blend into a classic soup or drink as juice like the Olympians do – beetroot is low in fat, full of vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants – a health-food titan.
This Thermomix Sweet Beetroot dip is a wonderful alternative to hummus and delicious served with vegetables and crackers (kids eating them too) or add to lunch wraps or vegetarian tacos as a healthy relish/sauce.
