FRESH and flavourful beetroot is in season and available at Food Lover’s Market this week.
This purple super-food has long been the villain in many kitchens, as it so easily stains hands, clothing and surfaces. However, its many uses and robust taste far outweigh this inconvenience.
Beetroot is delicious boiled and served cold, pickled, or even roasted.
With its powerful nutritional status and antioxidants, it’s also the perfect inclusion in any healthy juice or smoothie.
Quinton Mostert, store manager at Food Lover’s Market at the Mall @ Newmarket, shares a beetroot juice recipe and a tip on removing beetroot stains.
½ piece of peeled ginger
2 celery sticks
1 small beetroot bulb
1 large apple
½ lemon or lime
Rinse all ingredients and pat dry. Peel and cut the beetroot, carrots, celery sticks and the apple into long slices – remove the apple core. Process all ingredients in a juicer, or by means of the grating or pitcher mashing technique. Squeeze half a lemon into the prepared juice and stir well. Serve as desired.
Should you stain your hands while preparing the beetroot juice, cover the stains with salt, wet your hands and gently rub together. The salt will exfoliate your skin and remove beetroot stains. Repeat if necessary and, once satisfied, rinse off the salt and wash your hands with liquid dish soap.
