Beetroots have a bad rep. For most of us (in France at least) they represent canteen food or lunch at grandmas. But beets are making a come back on the food scene! Not only are they recognized to be healthy (a new trending super food), but also tasty (yes, more sweet and tender than you remember) and beets are even known to have some aphrodisiac virtues… No reason to resist giving beet recipes a try then!
Here, my first beet recipe is a simple Beet Carpaccio with fresh goat cheese.
There you go! An impressive yet effortless vegetarian starter.
Consider wearing rubber gloves to avoid staining your hands when preparing the beetroots, or even better buy beets already cooked (sous-vide) and ready to go!
I think that beets are going to make a more regular appearance in my fridge from now on. If you think so too and want to try out more beet-inspired recipes, check out this site.
