• 1-2 beetroots
  • 1 lime – juiced
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves – crushed



  1. Boil 2 beetroots for approx. 30mins until soft and cooked throughout. Remove from the boiling water, allow to cool slightly then carefully peel and cut the boiled beetroot into circle slices
  2. Prepare a marinade of lime juice, salt, vinegar, crushed garlic and olive oil.
  3. Leave in the beetroot in the marinade for 1 hour before serving.



  • Instead of boiling the beetroot, barbecuing or roasting for 20-30mins gives a sweeter, earthy flavor.
  • Add spicy peanut dip to the cooked beetroot for a variation of the beetroot salad.

Spicy peanut dip summary: Mix peanut butter, little water, lime juice, chilli powder and salt. Taste and balance.
