What’s GREAT at the Market?

Bursting with rich flavour and vibrant colour beetroot like all fresh vegies provides great nutritional value. Its rich intense colour is due to betacyanin. This antioxidant is important for a healthy heart so what better reason to enjoy beetroot regularly.

Beetroot is delicious raw grated in a salad, but is more frequently cooked or pickled- roasted is simply divine as roasting intensifies its sweetness. It is also superb as a beetroot relish. Enjoy beetroot this week in a:

  • Beetroot, Nimbin Valley Dairy goats cheese and Tweed River pecan salad or a rocket, feta and beetroot salad.
  • Warmed beetroot and pecan salad or
  • Spinach and feta quiche with beetroot relish.
If you love the idea of raw but are short of time try a Beetroot, mint and almond dip made by Spice Palace – so easy and so tasty.

A reminder that Sugar cane juice started at the market last week and was VERY popular.  Bernie O’Reilly makes a great juice.
