Love it or hate it, beetroot has a lot going for it. This sweet, ruby red root veg packs a powerful nutritional punch. It has a delicious and distinctive depth of flavour. Beetroot is super versatile too, freshly roasted it is rich and nutty; buy it ready cooked and it’s a sweet topping or a health giving smoothie ingredient; try it dipped in sweet chilli from the chiller and you’ll get through a punnet in no time. And remember, it’s only crinkle cut vinegary when it’s pickled.


It’s no secret that I always keep vacpac cooked beetroot and feta cheese in my fridge at all times. They have saved me from going hungry on many occasions.
