Recipe for a nutritious beetroot poke bowl
The deep red vegetable is traditionally served as a delicious salad. But beetroot is much more versatile than we think. In this recipe, the vegetable is a treat for the palate – and for the eyes too.
Beetroot strengthens the body’s defences
The bowl is not only visually attractive, but its nutritional content is impressive too. The immune-boosting red pigment betanin, which is so plentiful in beetroot, also contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The body also benefits from significant amounts of vitamin C, zinc and selenium.
