10 Ways To Prepare Beets That Will Totally Blow Your Mind

With root vegetable season firmly upon us, it is an ideal time to make beets a feature on your dinner table. Not only do beets add wonderful, warm colour to your meals, they are also incredibly nutritious. They contain vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C, choline, folic acid, iodine, manganese, organic sodium, potassium, iron, calcium, copper and phosphorus! That is packing a punch! Beets are versatile and sweet, offering benefits from fighting cancer and dementia to lowering blood pressure and improving skin appearance. Here is how to choose the perfect beet. Pick ones that are firm. They become spongy as they get older. And look for ones with fresh dark leafy tops. When older, they will have a yellowy tinge. Store them in the fridge and remember, not only can you eat beets raw, you can also eat the greens. Waste not, want not! Trying to find a way to eat beets other than in a roasted form? You're in luck. Feast your eyes on these amazing and creative recipes.
