Introducing my current whole food obsession: beetroot cous cous! 😍 SO easy to throw together – just grab a bunch of RAW beetroot from your local markets or grocery store instead of the ‘stuff ‘that comes in a can. Why? Because canned Beetroot is typically mixed with sulphites, sugar and food colouring that messes with your gut/digestion #nothankyou right!? I have been doing this a LOT lately…making vegetable cous cous in place of the usual gluten free grains I eat. Sometimes it’s good to change things up – in life and food, I highly recommend it.
Beautiful Beetroot Cous Cous
- 3 medium beetroot bulbs
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (if eating raw) or virgin coconut oil (if eating warm)
- Sea salt to taste
- Clean and peel your raw beetroot bulbs. Place in a food processor and pulse to create small pieces, as in pic above.
- Enjoy raw with some extra virgin olive oil 👌🏻 OR sauté in a health supportive fat to warm and soften 🙏🏻
I love eating this beetroot cous cous both raw sprinkled on top of salads AND cooked in place starchy, over-processed cous cous that’s basically a bland version of ground-up, over-processed pasta!
