Yellow beet

Yellow beet

Mid-July to end of May

Did you know that deeply coloured, the flesh of the beet is particularly rich in antioxidants? Don’t throw away the leaves! They are delicious and can be prepared just like spinach leaves.

Do you know the nutritional value of beet?
Per 125ml (½ cup) of cooked vegetable:
Energy: 40kcal; Carbohydrates: 9g; Fibre: 2g (source of fibre)
Magnesium: 8 % of RDI (excellent source of magnesium)
Potassium: 8 % of RDI (excellent source of potassium)

Did you know that it’s better to cook the beets with their skins? This way the maximum of nutrients are retained and, as a bonus, the beets will be much easier to peel once they’re cooked!
