Try these three ways to get your beets on:

1/ Juice It

Blend up two roughly chopped beetroots with the juice from two oranges, 100ml water and a handful of ice. Add some ginger for an extra kick.

2/ Slaai It

Add grated or finely sliced raw beetroot to your salad. Works well with goat’s cheese, carrots and mint. Hmmm pink salad…

3/ Chip It

Turn oven up to 180 degrees. Slice beetroot with a mandolin. Place carefully on a baking sheet with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake until crisp (25-30 minutes). Remove chips from the oven and place on paper towels to soak up any excess oil. Yum!

Alternatively you can just roast your beetroot with a little olive oil and serve them as a side dish. Beetroots get sweeter once they’re roasted and the vibrant colour will pop on your table!
