A food which promises one too many health benefits and exhibits an exciting play of flavour and colour on our plates is none other but beetroot. Calling it just another vegetable would be an understatement. Beetroot easily fits into our culinary adventures and is also credited for adding life to even the most mundane affairs. When it comes to listing down health benefits, it is safe to say - we will run out of ink. Beetroots are low in calories, have almost negligible fat content and also help in reducing blood pressure. Beetroot is an excellent source of iron, therefore it is great for maintaining healthy haemoglobin levels, aids in the production of red blood cells and is a natural blood purifier. Let's just say there are more than enough reasons to munch on this ruby red delight. Throw some beetroot cubes while preparing your garden-fresh salad or stuff it in between your sandwiches. Dips and chutneys with a vibrant red colour or probably a delectable dessert - you can cook with beetroot as you please. But, considering the cold months, we suggest a bowl of piping hot beetroot soup. What say?
