Chocolate Beetroot Biscuit + more beetroot recipe

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Beetroot is one vegetable that I rarely put on our plates for lunch or dinner.  I’m not sure why as I really enjoy it when I do eat it.  However, I came across this recipe below at Childhood 101, created by Kyrstie from A Fresh Legacy.  I have never of thought of adding beetroot to cookies, but this sounds delicious and healthy certainly one I’m going to add to my ‘to bake’ recipe collection.

Here are some more beetroot recipes I found

Cream Cheese Spread with Beetroot and Horseradish via Nami Nami

Beetroot Hommus via Coles

Choc Beet Cupcakes – Dairy & Gluten Free via The Mindful Foodie

Beetroot, Carrot and Potato Salad via SBS

Beetroot Dip via Thrive PT

Oh Kat I’m so glad I’m not the only crazy person who likes to experiment with things not so usual. I made a Beetroot Cake for my friends birthday! One of my other friends declared that I was weird – I like to eat weird things.

It’s kinda true. I’ve had red wine cake, kangaroo lasagne, kanga bangas.

But that’s just what I’ve made. When in Indonesia I eat frog, snails and turtle (not so keen to try snake though!)

I love a Jamie Oliver recipe for when I’m doing a roast beef – use small beets (or chop large beets into golf ball size pieces) add a few crushed garlic cloves, some fresh sprigs of marjoram and thyme (I love lemon thyme) about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and a generous glug of olive oil. Mix together, wrap into a packet of double thickness alfoil so it won’t leak then bake in the oven at 180 degrees C for about 45 minutes

Thanks so much for featuring my recipe Kat. Along with these biscuits our other fav way to enjoy beetroot is beetroot chips.

Thank you so much for featuring Kyrstie’s recipe, Kat. How good do those cupcakes look – just added that recipe to my list to try!

Don’t they look good, I love finding recipes with hidden goodness in them.

I love beetroot, fresh, roasted, pickled – any way at all. but unfortunately my husband and son both despise it, only a little less than broccoli (my favourite vegetable!). But, I think I will have to go check out that biscuit recipe, and the muffins. Who could resist those?

Think beetroot and broccoli are chick veggies. They are my 2 favourites as well!

Maybe that’s it, ’cause my girls both like them too (though they aren’t quite as keen as me! 🙂
