First rule in roadside beet sales, put the most attractive beets on top. The ones that make you pull the car over and go, ‘Wow, I need this beet right now.’ Those are the money beets. – Dwight K. Schrute
Luckily, this vegan meatball recipe does not require you to drive down country lanes in search of the perfect beets to make money vegan “beetballs”. Since beets can take awhile to cook, this meatball recipe features pre-cooked beets that you can buy at your local grocery store – either preserved or cooked and marinated. This recipe is dedicated to all of you who are short on time, but want to prepare a simple, yet flavourful dinner to impress.
The best part? Since you’re not using meat, you can easily taste the meatball mixture and adjust the flavours to suit your palette. Bye bye salmonella and listeria, hello immune-boosting vitamin C and fibre!
According to my favourite Dr. Mercola, incorporating beets into your diet is an excellent way to:
- lower your blood pressure;
- boost your stamina;
- fight inflammation;
- ward off cancer; and
- detoxify your body.
