What You’ll Need
Making sure you get the most out of each beet — and using parts of the veggie that we typically throw away — begins with having the right tools. So, we recommend you grab your best beet slicer or knife, as well as a handy vegetable peeler and cutting board.
Cut and Peel
With your beet slicer or knife, cut the root and stem ends off the beet and peel the skin using your vegetable peeler. But remember, don’t throw the root and stem ends out! You’ll want to dice those up and include them in your recipe in one way or another.
Stack, Cut, Dice
Place the beet flat-side down on the cutting board and cut into slices. Once you have your slices, stack them next to each other and cut them crosswise to dice. And just like that, you’ve got plenty of beets to use in a salad, on a sandwich, or for something totally different and unexpected (beet hummus, perhaps?).
BENEFITS OF WHOLE-VEGGIE
The average American only gets half their recommended dietary fiber per day, but did you know you get more dietary fiber from the skin, seeds, and stems of the veggies you eat? We use those parts in our ZENB Veggie Sticks to make sure you can enjoy all the veggie goodness there is to enjoy.
Where does the dietary fiber in beets come from?
We use dehydration to concentrate the vegetables in our ZENB Veggie Sticks. The nutrition facts listed here are about these veggies based on their original, pre-produced state.
