Beetroot Salad (this photo shows one with a little more carrot, as my kids love carrot!)

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! 🙂

  1. Nice recipe, simple and fresh. I really like beetroot with apple. I usually make a quick salad from beetroot and sesame seeds. I grate the beets and stirfry them very briefly first. You can see pictures on my blog, if interested: http://mangosoup.blogspot.com/2009/08/sesame-beetroot.html

    This is SO good, using it along side crumbed chicken (with own breadcrumbs with herbs) and roast potatoes for dinner tonight, if I can stop eating it lol thanks!
