Beetroot the humble root vegetable, Is a powerhouse of goodness. Beetroots are a rich source of vitamin A, B-complex and C. It also has lots of fibre so it is especially good for children who have a tendency to constipation. It is rich in iron and other minerals. It also has anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

 

How we like it:

 

Roasting is becoming the cooking method of choice for beetroot, and is a great way to re-introduce beetroot to those who think they don't like it. Roasting requires little preparation, and the beetroot can be enjoyed as is or left to cool or even used in a beetroot salad.

 

Cooked beetroot can be added to almost any salad with great results, but beetroot really shines when it takes centre stage. Try making a salad with roasted beetroot and any of these favourite additions: chopped apples, feta, soft goat cheese, toasted nuts, segmented oranges. Simply drizzle with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and there you go
