Spiced Beetroot

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by bluemoon downunder

For beetroot lovers! A delicious, very low calorie, VERY low fat (0.1g!) side dish to accompany any main course. I found this recipe in Karen Meyer's 'The Artful Vegetarian' and I have adapted it slightly in posting it for the Healthy for the Holidays Challenge.

Nice and spicy. This is one of those dishes that you keep tasting after you've swallowed a bite. I don't really like cider vinegar and didn't want to buy some just for one dish so I used lemon juice instead.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the unpeeled beetroots on a baking tray and bake in a moderate oven for 1 hour, or until tender when pierced with a skewer.
  2. Cool the beetroots until they are cool enough to handle, and wear gloves if you don't want to end up with beetroot-coloured hands! Peel and dice the beetroots. (see Note).
  3. Combine the diced beetroot with the remaining ingredients in a pan over a gentle heat, and toss for 4-5 minutes, or until heated through; and serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt (optional).
  4. NOTE: If you'd like an easy recipe for making your own vegetable stock - my Vegetable Stock Recipe #135453 - start by saving the peel from the beetroots!
