Peppermint beetroot

This recipe can also be prepared with raw beetroots. Just grate them, using the large part of a cheese grater and season. Delicous and refreshing.

Ingredients (serves 6):

  • 1 kg of beetroots
  • 2 parsley stalks
  • 6 to 8 peppermint leaves
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper


  • Choose small beetroots.
  • Clean and cook them. Once the beetroots are tender, peel and cut them into small dice.
  • Chop the parsley and mint leaves.
  • Mix the chopped beetroots with the chopped herbs, adding lemon juice, oil and seasoning.
  • Before serving let it rest.

Opt for good quality oils to season red and orangy vegetables such as beetroots and carrots, as it better solubilize the pro-vitamin A contained in these vegetables.
