August 20, 2010, Newsletter Issue #232: Waste Not ... Beetroot Leaves

Tip of the Week

If you buy your vegetables at a farmers market, you will often find beetroot sold with the leaves still attached. They are a good indicator of the freshness of the beetroot - only buy if the leaves are dark green. But when you get your purchase home, donít throw the leaves and stalks away. Washed and chopped, they can be used just like spinach, make an excellent pasta sauce and are a good source of iron and folic acid.
