I have avoided eating beetroot for as long as I can remember. A few months go, my mother offered me a par-boiled beetroot dressed in salt and lemon juice. It tasted great and I realized beetroot isn't that bad after all. Beetroot has a beautiful deep pink color and it very conveniently stains clothes, hands and utensils which I think is manageable.
Beetroot is gaining immense popularity among modern chefs and foodies . Roast it, blend it, drink it, pickle it - beetroot is a super-food which is full of vitamins, minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants. It lowers blood pressure which is beneficial for preventing heart disease and stroke. Those of you who have iron deficiency, eating beetroot is an excellent way to improve hemoglobin.
