what you'll need
Making sure you get the most out of each beetroot — and using parts of the veggie that we typically throw away — begins with having the right tools. So, we recommend you grab your best beetroot slicer or knife, as well as a handy vegetable peeler and cutting board.
cut and peel
With your beetroot slicer or knife, cut the root and stem ends off the beetroot and peel the skin using your vegetable peeler. But remember, don’t throw the root and stem ends out! You’ll want to dice those up and include them in your recipe in one way or another.
stack, cut, dice
Place the beetroot flat-side down on the cutting board and cut into slices. Once you have your slices, stack them next to each other and cut them crosswise to dice. And just like that, you’ve got plenty of beetroots to use in a salad, on a sandwich, or for something totally different and unexpected (beetroot hummus, perhaps?).
BENEFITS OF WHOLE-VEGGIE
Did you know you get more dietary fibre from the skin, seeds, and stems of the veggies you eat? We use those parts in our ZENB Veggie snacks to make sure you can enjoy as much of the whole vegetable as possible.
Where does the dietary fibre in beetroot come from?
We use dehydration to concentrate the vegetables and fruit in our ZENB Veggie Snacks. The nutrition facts listed here are about these veggies based on their original, pre-produced state.
