Worried about what you're going to do with your beetroot ? well don't be
.. Beetroot is a good source of iron and folate (naturally occurring folic acid). It also contains nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants (notably betacyanin). More recent health claims suggest beetroot can help lower blood pressure, boost exercise performance and prevent dementia.
The easiest way to cook your beetroot is to roast it! Here's how ..
Wash the beetroot, put them in a pot of water and bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and allow to cool briefly. Set beetroot individually onto pieces of foil, drizzle with olive oil (optional) and wrap up tightly. Place in an ovenproof dish and bake in oven for about 20-60 minutes (depending on size) or until they feel soft. Allow to slightly cool & peel. Use as desired!
