I loooooooove vegetables!!!!!

Don’t get me wrong I am an ardent meat lover! And I loooooove to go on the meaty side every so often I a week and not just the lean ones I am afraid 🙂

But vegetables! I love them too and by that I mean not just the regular tomato cucumbers I love the more challenging cauliflower, zuchini, Egg plant , capsicum sort. You know the ones people generally develop preference to! I don’t have any! I love them alllllll!!!!

And one of my most favourite cold weather vegeatable is Beetroot!!!!

This purple sweet zincy vegetable makes awesome substitues for potatoes in most of my dishes and I love to make its soup (shared the recipe here) I also love it in burgers :0 but most of all I love it in salads!!!!!!

Paired with greens it works beaaaautifully!!! You can boil it or grill it or simply chop it up for a gorgeous purply winter sweet salad.

I keep the dressing really simple

A dash of vinegar

A pinch of salt

A dash of olive oil

Its heaven in a bowl!!!!!! Vinegar cuts beautifully through the beetroot and the olive oil moistens it juuuust a little bit with the salt elevating the flavour generously!

We all find it easier to lean towards vegetables in summer and somehow its harder to toss on in winters!!! I love this coz its soooo easy to put together and I have a fall salad up in my sleeve!!!!!
