This is a very quick and easy salad, especially if you have a Thermomix! You can make it in a food processor, but you may need to cut the veges in smaller pieces before processing or you’ll crack the jug! (I know, I’ve done it in my pre-Thermomix days!) Recipe from Thermomix cookbook.
– 400g raw beetroot (peeled & quartered)
– 100g carrot, quartered
– 1/4 small red onion
– 1 green apple, quartered & deseeded
– 1 handful of fresh coriander/Italian parsley leaves
– 2 tbsp olive oil
– juice of 1/2 lemon
– 1 tsp Rapadura
– pinch salt
Place roughly cut vegetables in Thermomix/food processor and chop on medium speed (sp. 5) until evenly chopped (2-3 seconds in Thermomix). Scrape down sides and chop again for a couple of seconds until desired consistency.
If you accidently process too much, or you have leftovers, add some raw cashews or almonds, process until finely ground, and use as a dip!
I sometimes make this with half carrot, half beetroot – it’s a bit cheaper, and the kids like carrot more than beetroot! 🙂
