SPINACH ‘N’ BEET SALAD


Beetroot is a wonderful nutritive root vegetable

which has to be included in juices,salads often.

Good for growing children and for those who

feel low on energy levels. Earlier I had

posted a boiled beetroot salad , which I make

very often at home.

This recipe is a grated beetroot salad lightly

tossed in oil , to get the raw taste out with

spinach leaves and sunflower seeds.

Quick,easy,and tasty too!Summer days calls for

Salads and juices , so do try these recipes and

post in your comments and suggestions !

INGREDIENTS

2 beetroots peeled and grated

A handful or more of spinach leaves

1 onion chopped fine

2-3 green chillies / capsicum chopped

2 tblsp lime juice

1/4 tsp pepper/ 1/2 tsp chilli flakes

salt to taste

1 tblsp oil

A handful of toasted sunflower / any seeds of

your choice.

METHOD

second.

Remove from fire,and transfer to a bowl.

In the same oil add the grated beetroot and

sauté for just 3-5 minutes.Remove from fire

and mix in with the spinach leaves.

Add the rest of the ingredients,and mix well.

Nuts can be your choice of pumpkin,

As these seeds are a good source of VitaminD

present times.
