Beetroot

Discover the vibrant and earthy flavour of our fresh beetroot. Each beetroot is cultivated with care, absorbing the nutrients from rich, fertile soil. This gives them a unique, sweet taste with a slightly earthy undertone. Whether you enjoy them raw, roasted, or pickled, our beetroots are a versatile addition to any meal. Try adding thinly sliced raw beetroot to salads for a crunchy texture, or roast them with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt for a delicious side dish. Beetroot can also be blended into smoothies for a nutrient-packed boost.

Selecting the perfect beetroot at the grocery store is easy when you know what to look for. Choose beetroots that are firm and round with smooth, unblemished skin. The size doesn’t impact the flavour, but smaller beets tend to be more tender. Look for beets with fresh, green leaves still attached, as this is a sign of freshness. Avoid beetroots that feel soft or have any spots, which can indicate spoilage. Additionally, ensure the beetroot has a deep, rich colour, which suggests it’s packed with nutrients​.

Beetroot is incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in many delicious ways. For a quick and easy option, try roasting beetroot wedges with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. They also make a fantastic addition to salads; simply grate raw beetroot over greens for a pop of colour and flavour. For something different, blend beetroot into hummus for a vibrant, healthy dip. You can even use beetroot in baking, adding pureed beetroot to chocolate cake batter for extra moisture and a subtle earthy sweetness​.
