Veggie of the Week: Beetroot

This week, we shine the spotlight on beets! Bursting with earthy flavors and vibrant colors, beetroot is a nutritional powerhouse, brimming with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. We have been loving a classic beetroot and feta salad recently, recipe as follows:

2 beetroots, boiled and peeled | mixed salad | 50g goat cheese or feta, crumbled | Handful of walnuts, roughly chopped | Balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Step 1: Cut the boiled beetroots into bite-sized cubes and set aside.

Step 2: In a large salad bowl, mix the salad greens, crumbled goat cheese, and chopped walnuts. Add beetroot pieces once cool.

Step 3: Drizzle your favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing over the salad to serve. (In our pic below we added pommegranate and sweet potato but these are optional!)

Cucumber/Radish

We have another week of slow cropping cucumber so some of you will receive radish instead. Those of you who have radish this week will have cucumber next and vice versa.
