Beetroot roots can be eaten cooked, raw or juiced. Young leaves can be eaten like spinach – boiled, steamed, microwaved, stir fried or used raw in salads.

Trim root end and scrub. Leave skin intact until cooked to prevent colour loss. Peel when cooked. For salads, use raw or cooked, grated or sliced. Peel, cut to size and roast; young beetroot may not need peeling. When boiling beetroot, do not break the skin or it will bleed and lose its colour. Before microwaving, pierce the skin or the beetroot may explode. The skin is easily removed once the beetroot is cooked. Wait until cool and rub the skin off.

 

Storage Tip!

  • To store beetroot, place them in a plastic bag/beeswax wrap and keep them refrigerated.
  • Beet greens are edible. Cut the leaves from the root, and store them separately.
  • The greens will keep for a few days in a plastic bag/beeswax wrap put in the crisper section of the refrigerator.
