Not only does the vibrancy and glorious scarletness of this heavenly spread immediately captures everyone’s attention, but the combination of sweet and salty ingredients work beautifully together.
Beetroot is high in vitamin C, fibre and essential minerals such as potassium and magnesium. It is also known to help lower blood pressure and fight inflammation so this spread really does pack a nutritional punch. Serve with thick cut gluten free toast, crackers and veggie sticks or stirred through your favourite pasta.
