25 Sep Beetrooty Goodness
So seen as my friend dropped me over some fresh beetroot yesterday I decided to make a delicious salad with it! So simple but utterly delicious and nutritious! If you’re considering beetroot as one of your 5-a-day, it contains potassium, magnesium, iron, vitamins A, B6 and C, folic acid, carbohydrates, protein, antioxidants and soluble fibre. That’s not bad for a root vegetable!
Washed spinach leaves (1 handful)
Washed rocket leaves (1 handful)
1/2 medium beetroot grated
5/6 cherry tomatoes halved (red and yellow)
150g cooked brown rice
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 celery stalk diced
Sea salt and cracked black pepper (to taste)
Cook brown rice to packet instructions
Dice celery and cherry tomatoes
Grate 1/2 a medium beetroot
Place all ingredients in a large bowl, squeeze in 1/2 a lemon and season to taste.
Toss and serve
With the other beetroots I’m going to make some tasty juices.. So more on that to come! Enjoy..
