A brief introduction

Hard to miss, this beautiful, bright red-purple root vegetable is enjoying new popularity. It looks exquisite on the plate and tastes delicious with many other flavours. A very economical vegetable, too, as the whole plant can be eaten. The green leaves with their purple stalks make good eating steamed and served with other vegetables.

Note: The salicylate content of beetroot increases from low to moderate if eating the tinned variety.
