  • Ingredients 17
  • Servings 2

Today I want to show you how to make a delicious and colorful recipe. It contains - among other vegetables - beets, one of my favorites since I was a child. I remember my mother used to surprise me when I got home from school with a delicious plate of beets seasoned with nothing but olive oil and salt. I can’t erase the memory of their delicious sweet flavor and beautiful red-purple color. Beets can be eaten cooked (cold or hot) or raw, if you slice them very thinly or grate them. They are used in creams, salads, juices and much more. Prepare them yourself. They will be a total success! MORE + LESS -
