What you can do with a beetroot..
Do you like beetroot? I think this vegetable is a bit underrated in most of the kitchens. The truth is that beetroot is not only delicious, super healthy but also very diverse in preparation. It can be used for savoury or sweet dishes, even pickled it tastes delicious.
Today I am going to share two beetroot salads, which can be eaten for a light lunch during the day, as a starter for dinner or as a side dish to any meat. Both salads are done under 10 minutes, are super nutritious and looks just beautifully on the plate. If you want to prepare something special without spending too much time in the kitchen you would like these recipes for sure.
