This Beetroot relish is delicious and super easy to make. By making it yourself it means you know what is in it! This recipe has way less sugar than the majority of store-bought relishes and also has no additional nasties used to preserve it.
The humble beetroot has so many health benefits. It’s low in calories and packed with essential nutrients, such as fibre, folate, B6, manganese, potassium and vitamin C. Beetroots may also improve blood flow, increase exercise performance and lower blood pressure, all mainly due to the high levels of nitrates found in beets.
Adding a little relish is a great way to jazz up almost any meal. Some ideas include in sandwiches, with any meats, as a side for a quiche or frittata, with eggs for breakfast or as featured with avocado on Venerdi paleo toast
