Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Beetroot

Cucumber Rolls with Garlicky Beets Filling

An eye-catching appetizer for a potluck or just for snacking. Easy way to eat beets, which are especially good for cleansing at this time of the year.

Pick-Me-Up Juice

The carrots and beets will wake up your taste buds in the morning, while the garlic and ginger will ensure you will be well protected from whatever “bug” happens to be floating around this time of year.

Fermented Beets and Carrots

Fermented veggies promote good digestion and healthy gut flora, and even make some nutrients more bioavailable. Your colon, heart, liver and skin will love the beets and carrots whose texture and edibility has been boosted by the fermentation process, with the taste transformed from sweet to savory.

Invigorating Morning Juice

This rejuvenating and invigorating juice I drink at the start of most days. It’s very simple, quick to make and I never get tied of it.

Russian-Style Layered Mushroom Salad

Tired of traditional salads? This recipe puts a whole new spin on the salad theme. The idea for this festive layered salad comes from Russian cuisine.

Traditional Russian salad recipes often include herring, boiled potatoes and mayonnaise. But this healthy variation is chock full of raw goodness. Instead of cooking vegetables, use them in their raw state. Let mushrooms be the substitute for herring and have the avocados stand in for potatoes—more tastily, too! No mayo, either—instead, a nut-based dressing.

A decided improvement in taste and nutrition. A real novelty, too. Your party guests will never have seen or tasted this one! Guaranteed to impress.

Fennel ‘n Greens Juice

A wrinkle – smoothing, alkalizing, mostly green morning juice.

Pacific Breeze Juice

The taste of papaya merges with the taste of orange and beet root to pack an incredible amount of enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants into this powerful juice.

Russian Borsch

Aside from juicing, one of my favorite ways to use fresh beets is this classic Russian Borsch recipe (modified to be raw of course) from Quantum Eating.
