Hello sunshine!

Today I am sharing with you a simple and delicious way to prepare beets. I think you will like it, especially if the sweet taste of this tuber is a downer to you.

But before going to the recipe let me just tell you that beets are a nutritional bomb. Raw beets are rich in folate, manganese, potassium,  vitamin C, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and vitamin B6. Oh, and by the way, did you know that beet´s red color is due to the presence of betalains, phytonutrients with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties? Now time for the recipe!

 

Beet Carpaccio

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium beet
  • 1/4 tsp of fleur de sel
  • 1/2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp of dried oregano

 

Instructions:

  1. Peel the beet and slice it with the help of a mandoline*
  2. Place the beet in a bowl and season it with fleur de sel, olive oil, lemon, black pepper and oregano
  3. Lay the beet out on a plate and add more oregano on top if necessary

 

Beet carpaccio works great as a starter or side dish. 🙂

 

Nurture yourself,

Natacha

 

*Be careful while using the mandoline, so you don´t cut yourself.
