Beetroot dishes

Beetroot is a vegetable full of vitamins and minerals, such as iron, antioxidants, etc., but it also tastes really good. You can use it in sweet and savory dishes and its versatility allows us to prepare appetizers, soups, salads or even desserts. In this list, we will show you how to use this super tasty and healthy tuber that will delight any guest.

1. Sourdough Bread with Beetroot Juice

We start off strong with a sourdough bread with beetroot juice. The juice of this vegetable is really intense, so we don’t need to add much: this way, we don't change the original bread recipe nor recalculate the ingredients.

2. Beetroot Hummus

Beetroot hummus is the perfect appetizer, not only for its flavor and bright color, but also for its nutritional value. The chickpeas are really rich in protein while the beetroot and sesame seeds provide the organism with folic acid, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium.

3. Beetroot Chips

These beetroot chips can be the perfect pairing for the beetroot hummus we did earlier or even for the traditional hummus. What’s more, you can do the two kinds of hummus for the same occasion: the first one following the traditional recipe with chickpeas, and the other one with boiled beetroot.

4. Beetroot Salad

This warm salad with chopped beetroot, avocado, sweet potato, lentils, and some lettuce will bring joy to your stomach any day of the week.

5. Beetroot Burger

How good does this beetroot burger with mango sauce look? And if we use gluten free bread, it would not only be perfect for vegans, but also for celiac people. What a wonderful dish!

6. Beetroot Gazpacho

The gazpacho recipe —the classic Spanish cold tomato soup— is so versatile that we can add different ingredients to make it more original. If you add boiled or raw beetroot, you will have a perfect gazpacho with a sweet touch.

7. Beetroot Pasta

The noticeable beetroot color can also be incorporated to the Italian cuisine. Mixing the beetroot juice with the pasta is such a good option if we want to make beetroot raviolis or spaghetti. And if you don’t make your pasta at home, don’t worry, you can find it ready to cook at the supermarket and we assure you it tastes really good as well.

8. Beetroot Gnocchi

And if we want to keep exploring the Italian dishes, we can prepare some delicious and easy beetroot gnocchi. The preparation is really quick and fun, and you will only need 4 ingredients: potatoes, beetroot, flour, and eggs.

9. Beetroot Pizza

A pizza with some sliced beetroot on top had to be on our list. Besides, you can use the beetroot slices, or you can add its juice to the dough to create a colorful pizza.

10. Beetroot Crepes

Serving these crepes to your guests will leave them guessing how this French dessert turned into that red color. You just need to add the beetroot juice to the traditional crepes’ recipe.

11. Borsh Soup

This Ukrainian soup is really common in Eastern Europe and the North of Asia. The preparation takes its time, and you can do it with meat or just vegetables. The two options are as healthy and tasty.

12. Creamy Beetroot Soup

But the truth is that, in Europe, vegetable soups are more likely to have a creamier consistency. Well, there’s no problem with that! We can also do a creamy beetroot soup that we can complement with carrots, pumpkin, cauliflower, etc. There’s no doubt this creamy soup is going to be packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber.

13. Beetroot Cookies

Look out for these amazing homemade gluten free cookies with oat flour and beetroot puree flavored with honey, poppy seeds, and prunes on the inside. Sprinkle them with some sesame seeds and they will be more tasteful and cuter. These cookies are a joy to eat and look at!

14. Beetroot Latte

Beetroot is so versatile that it can be used not only in dishes, but also in drinks. This red latte or red velvet latte is as surprising on the outside, for its color, as it is on the inside, for its flavor.

15. Raw Beetroot Noodle Salad

Vegetable noodles are on trend because they are healthy and easy to make, and beetroot is one of those vegetables you can add to these salads. To bring out the flavor: use olive oil and seeds as dressings.

16. Beetroot Chocolate Brownie

Do beetroot and chocolate even match? The answer is yes. Not only that, but, as surprising as it sounds, the beetroot adds a special moist to the brownie. We can find some resemblances with the carrot cake.

17. Beetroot Smoothie

In just 5 minutes you can prepare a beetroot smoothie with whenever you’ve got at home. It can be combined with bananas, apples, strawberries, ginger, carrots, etc. And once it’s done, it’s better to drink it as quickly as you can so it doesn’t lose its nutrients.

18. Baked Beetroot

If you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, beetroot can be baked in the oven. Add some olive oil and salt and… That's it!

A very versatile ingredient

As we have seen, we can use beetroot in an endless number of dishes: starting with appetizers, then in the first and second course, and in desserts. Which recipe was your favorite? Will you cook it if you buy this amazing vegetable?
