I love beets, I used to. I used to eat them from a jar, but nowadays I choose to prepare them fresh more and more. In this blog 5 tasty recipes with beets.
The beetroot is available all year round, because there is a summer and a winter beet. The summer beets are smaller and are often sold with the leaves (which are also edible). The winter bite is a bit larger and needs to be cooked longer. So pay close attention to what type of beet you buy because summer beets only need to be cooked for 20 minutes and winter beets about 1.5 hours. Last summer I also roasted beets on the barbecue, you could also do this in the oven.
Beets are very healthy, they contain many vitamins and nutrients. In addition, they also contain a lot of iron, folic acid and antioxidants that are important for good blood pressure and for the heart and vessels. Some people call these vegetables a superfood.
