This beetroot carpaccio is so delicious, easy to make and pairs well with just about everything! I use red, yellow and polka beets when making this side dish since I love the colors. But it is just as delicious using only one of above beets! This beetroot carpaccio is made with cooked beets, which gives it a tender and sweet taste. I love to top mine with some fresh mâche salad and hemp seeds.
Beetroots are one if my favorite root vegetables. It’s so versatile and useful for many different purposes. I love to eat them in all ways and forms; raw, cooked, fried, roasted.. Im all in. I include them in my food almost every day. I have found that the best way of serving them is almost on their own, or just with 1-2 other ingredients. I love when they are the star of the dish and doesn’t come second hand.
This beetroot carpaccio is so easy to make, taste amazing and pairs with just about everything. This dish is also perfect to serve as a starter or appetizer if you want something easy, delicious and light. I topped this carpaccio with some fresh mâche salad and hemp seeds. The mâche salad adds freshness and some crunch, while the hemp seeds adds some nuttiness to the dish. But it would also be lovely to top it with some sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
