I love colour, and food that looks good. For me it is a big part of enjoying food. Beetroot is a food that I don’t eat very often but when I do I wonder why I don’t.
I have been even more surprised to discover that beetroot can be eaten raw. I had always thought that it needed to be boiled for hours before it became palatable.
After peeling (wearing an apron as the juices are still pretty messy) I then grated 2 beetroots and 2 carrots in the trusty food processor:
And for the dressing I went for something very simple:
- olive oil
- dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon of tahini
- 1 small garlic clove
- salt and pepper
- splash of water
All whisked together:
I then topped the salad with a mix of seeds (sesame, sunflower and linseed) for colour and texture:
And it tastes good too.
This salad was made and the washing up done within the space of 10 minutes. I think it is going to become a staple….
