We have discussed on our Facebook and Instagram page today the benefits of beetroot.
This is one of our favourite salads as it is colourful, flavoursome, and full of a range of nutrients which always makes us happy!
This was a recipe we devised ourselves after having a similar salad purchased from a supermarket once (who would have thought!) We have removed some of the nasties and added some additional ingredients and we are pretty happy with it!
2 beetroots with skin removed grated
2 carrots grated
A handful of shredded kale
1 cup of cooked quinoa
1 cup of canned and drained lentils
1/2 cup of dried cranberries
A handful of toasted seeds - sesame, sunflower, pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 orange
1. To toast seeds add to a dry frypan (no oil required) and place on medium heat for a couple of minutes stirring and shaking regularly as they can burn quickly. You can do a big batch at once and then store in a jar for other dishes.
2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
3. Add dressing and stir.
