Beetroot has a very high nutritional value. It also has a high water content, which is why it is very low in calories. It is rich in minerals and vitamins. Beetroot lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart disease, improves brain function, and supports liver function. It promotes endurance and is very good for digestion.
Because of all of these benefits, we made a delicious vegan beetroot carpaccio with flavorful broccoli sprinkles. It’s quick and easy to prepare. It is ideal for serving when guests spontaneously drop by or as a starter at a nice dinner.
