Here are some tips to get a perfect taste for this beetroot salad:
The beetroot is the taproot portion of a beet plant, usually known in Canada and the USA as beets while the vegetable is referred to as beetroot in British English, and also known as the table beet, garden beet, red beet, dinner beet or golden beet. It is one of several cultivated varieties of Beta vulgaris grown for their edible taproots and leaves (called beet greens); they have been classified as B. vulgaris subsp. vulgaris Conditiva Group.
Usually, the deep purple roots of beets are eaten boiled, roasted, or raw, and either alone or combined with any salad vegetable. A large proportion of the commercial production is processed into boiled and sterilized beets or into pickles. In Eastern Europe, beet soup, such as borscht, is common. In Indian cuisine, chopped, cooked, spiced beet is a common side dish. Yellow-colored beetroots are grown on a very small scale for home consumption. The green, leafy portion of the beet is also edible. The young leaves can be added raw to salads, whilst the mature leaves are most commonly served boiled or steamed, in which case they have a taste and texture similar to spinach.
Beetroot can be boiled or steamed, peeled, and then eaten warm with or without butter as a delicacy; cooked, pickled, and then eaten cold as a condiment; or peeled, shredded raw, and then eaten as a salad. Pickled beets are a traditional food in many countries.Beetroot (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beetroot)
1. It’s packed with essential nutrients
Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value, especially the greens, which are rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fiber, manganese, and potassium. The greens should not be overlooked – they can be cooked up and enjoyed in the same way as spinach.
2. Low in calories
3. High in fiber
Beetroot is rich in fiber, exerting favorable effects on bowel function, which may assist in preventing constipation and help to lower cholesterol levels too.
Beetroot fiber has been shown to increase the number of white blood cells, which are responsible for detecting and eliminating abnormal cells.
4. May have anti-cancer properties
The plant pigment that gives beetroot its rich, purple-crimson color is betacyanin; a powerful agent thought to help suppress the development of some types of cancer.
5. Anti-oxidant properties
Red beetroots have been ranked as one of the 10 most potent antioxidant vegetables. The betalain compounds in particular have been shown to have high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities in vitro and in a variety of in vivo animal models. This helps protect cellular components from oxidative injury resulting in diseases.
6. May improve digestive health
Beetroots are also one of the richest sources of glutamine, an amino acid, essential to the health and maintenance of the intestinal tract as well as wound healing.
7. Lowers blood pressure
Other studies have looked at the effect of beetroot juice on blood pressure. A reduction in blood pressure is beneficial for the avoidance of heart disease and stroke. Studies state that nitrate-rich foods like beetroot may help in heart attack survival.7 health benefits of beetroot (https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/ingredient-focus-beetroot)
