STRENGTHEN ANTI-OXIDANT & ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DEFENSES
Beets are one the few vegetables that contain betalains (which are responsible for their distinctive “beet red” color). A growing body of evidence indicates that betalains possess powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities, which may make them vital in battling the oxidative stress and chronic inflammation characterized by liver disease, arthritis and even cancer.
LOWER YOUR RISK OF HEART DISEASE
Beets are a rich in folate and, as mentioned above, betaine. These nutrients act together to help lower blood levels of homocysteine, which can increase your risk of heart disease by causing artery-damaging inflammation.
REDUCE RISK OF DEMENTIA BY BOOSTING BLOOD FLOW

A diet high in natural nitrate, such as drinking Beet It juice, has been shown to increase blood flow to critical areas of the brain called the white matter of the frontal lobe – known to be involved in the daily processes of life, such as control of memory, reasoning, problem-solving, planning and execution. This, in turn, may help to reduce the risk of dementia.

The healthiest, tastiest way to prepare beets.

The best way to benefit is to drink a glass of beets! Of course, beets also make a delicious, nutritional side-dish, ingredient in salads or dishes, or served on their own. To best preserve all the goodness beets have to offer, it’s best to eat them raw, by shredding or slicing them. But when it comes to cooking beets, we have a suggestion designed to preserve nutrients.

Roast beets lightly! When it comes to cooking beets, to preserve nutritional value be sure to roast them wrapped in foil. At 400º, for about an hour, or until tender. But be sure to keep the beet “jus”, and then incorporate that rich liquid into whatever dish you may be preparing. Studies show beets’ concentration of phytonutrients, such as betalains, is diminished by heat.

Peel beets after roasting by setting them on a cutting board and rubbing the skin off with a paper towel. Wearing kitchen gloves will help prevent your hands from becoming stained.

Please note: Boiling beets, while a common technique, actually results in reducing nitrate content — often, by up to 30%. We recommend roasting or, even better, eating beets raw.

  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsps olive oil\
  • 2 tsps butter

  • 2 tbsps chopped parsley
  • 3 tbsps hard Italian cheese
  • 1/4 cup  mild goat’s cheese

 

Instructions

  1. Bring a medium-sized pan of water to the boil and peel and finely dice both the onion and the garlic.
  2. Peel and chop the beetroot into 1cm cubes and gently crumble the goat’s cheese.
  3. 3. Measure out 3 cups of the boiling water and discard the rest.
  4. Dissolve the stock cube in the water and return to the pan on the lowest heat to keep warm.
  5. Add the beetroot juice to the pan.
  6. In a separate pan, pour in the red wine vinegar, along with 1 tablespoon of water and heat on a medium/low temperature. Add the cubed beetroot for 5 minutes to warm it through.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat and keep to the side for later
  8. Heat two tablespoons of olive oil and two teaspoons of butter in a non-stick pan on a medium/low heat. Tip in the onion and garlic, stir thoroughly and gently cook and stir for around 5 minutes.
  9. Next add the rice for a few minutes and coat it in the oil.

  11. Add a ladle of the beetroot stock mixture into the rice and stir it using a wooden spoon until the stock has almost disappeared, then add another ladleful.
  12. Repeat this process until all the stock is used (which should take around 20 minutes).
  13. Taste the rice. It should be soft yet with a slight firmness in the centre. If the risotto is not cooked through then add a little more water.
  14. Fold in 1 tbsp of the chopped parsley, the final teaspoon of butter and the grated hard cheese.
  15. Taste once more for seasoning and add a little salt and pepper if necessary.
  16. Your risotto should have a nice runny consistency. Serve it into bowls and top with the crumbled goat’s cheese, beetroot cubes and a bit more parsley.
