Fresh beets take a long time to cook, but with a crockpot, there is no need to watch and wait. A vegetable so beautiful to slice, and delicious, in a sandwich or on top of any greens, is also loaded with vitamins. I have always used beets when preparing meals, and for the first time, I cooked fresh beets in a crockpot. It took almost 3 hours, to have delicious beets for my salad.
When I plan on making cheese or charcuterie platters, I add slices and whole beets to create a beautiful colorful platter. I look for any chance to add this beautiful vegetable to our meals for more goodness. Good for the digestive system, eating beets increases athletic performance, brain health, decreases inflammation, and detoxes the liver.
Two delicious and amazing side dishes that can help us stay healthy. If you cook often you know we are always looking for new and flavorful side dishes.
Beets are rich in beta-carotene, carotenoids, and flavonoids. These powerful antioxidants give beets that beautiful color. All foods that are rich in antioxidants are effective at cleansing your liver.
Love this vegetable. It has a beautiful color, and it is delicious served warm or cold. Great addition to salads and meals more so if grilled.
Lentils are great to lower cholesterol. Diets high in lentils prevent hypertension and tend to produce more favorable cholesterol levels than diets lower in lentils.
Cook lentils in water and salt to taste. Bring to boil and simmer until almost soft to chew. Serve it as a side dish, add it to rice, or any salad.
