Delicious Beetroot And Goats Cheese Salad With A Dash Chunky Walnuts

Friday, 5 September 2014

Beetroots, once they used to be my absolute most hated vegetable that my mother could have made me want to eat but these days it has slowly become my kind of vegetable.
I know its not the most exciting veggie on the marked but hear me out and I might just convince you to give these little red bulbs a try.
Beets have an super amount of nutritional value, they are rich in calcium, iron and vitamin A and C and are also known to be of benefit to our blood. They can lover blood pressure, boost your metabolism, fight inflammation and help your body to detox.

Things that all our body's need a little help with these days. I like to eat them once a week to give my body a little kick up the .... and get things going. And I also think that they are great at that special time of the month.
I used to have problems with my iron levels after having my two children but since I have been eating these little baby's there has been no more problems with my blood levels. So to me they are my kind of superfood that I like to reach for in that special time of the month or any other given time ;-)

This recipe is the one I like to mix up the most when I fancy me some beets. Its super easy and fresh and when you find that perfect goats cheese to go with ( I buy mine from a local farmers market), I can guarantee you that it will become a firm staple dish in your house.

Serves 2-3

4 medium organic beets

150 g fresh goats cheese

handful of walnuts

one small onion and a glove of garlic

salt, pepper, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar for seasoning

Wash and boil the beetroots for half an hour until soft. In the mean time prepare and chop the onion, garlic and walnuts and put them into a bowl.
Peel the skin of the freshly cooked beetroots and cut them into small thin slices and add them to the bowl.
Season with the salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar and give the salad a good stir.
Now add in the goats cheese and serve.



  1. YUMMY that looks absolutely delicious and a lot better way to have beetroot than these horrible drinks I tried! xx


    1. Thanks Jessica, I know those drinks are not good and some of them have a tone of sugar in them too. Better of eating fresh beetroot!
