Updated: Apr 16

Beetroots, also known as beets, are a popular root vegetable used in many cuisines around the world. Beets are packed with essential vitamins, minerals and plant compounds, some of which have medicinal properties and moreover, they are delicious!

Sous vide cooking helps us maintain the nutritional values of the beets (by cooking in lower temperatures than other cooking methods), achieving a perfectly cooked texture with natural sweet flavors

Cooling and Storing

After 3 hours of cooking, place the vacuum bag in an ice bath and let it cool for about 20 minutes.

After this cooking process, vacuum-sealed bags will be fully pasteurized, which means that you can store them in the fridge for several weeks or freeze for future use.

Slice the beets to cubes.

In a large bowl, mix the beets with salt, baby greens mix, coriander, dried cranberries, lemon juice, dry roasted pine nuts and, dry roasted pecans.
