Beetroot is a vegetable that is often ignored because people do not know how to cook it. It is actually very versatile: you can boil it, steam it, or even roast it! It has a rich flavor and it is full of antioxidants and nutrients - so it's definitely a vegetable that you should include in your menu. This salad can be eaten alone, with bread, or tossed in a garden salad. It's yummy and super easy!

Beets can be steamed in a steamer to cook, then chop, mix it with yoghurt. Salt pepper parsley all the same.

Beetroot has a flavour like a moulded fruit, to me.

i like what you do but why is it everything you do or mention is moroccan this moroccan that as far as i know most of your videos or cooking you showing  are north african origin and mainly arabian food, perhaps you are referring to the style. any way well done and i hope you come up with more ideas and recipes as ramadhan is fast approaching .

Vitamins are nonexistent. Boiling and chucking the water. Steaming or roasting is a better alternative.

after 60 minutes of boiling, wud there be any nutrients left in the beets???
Holisticliving Radhika (2 months ago)
Roasting might help save the nutrients.

It's just a guess, but I'm thinking yes because she's cooking them whole with their skins on.
shashakeeleh (1 year ago)
If you wait and let beets cool to just cool enough to handle, you can remove the entire skin with a paper towel and not even have to peel them.

Just rub the skin off the cooked beetroot under cold running water, cools the veg down and no pink hands!

So I made this and my son loooved it. I was really surprised. I thought it would be one of those recipes that would be mine alone, but he always asks me to make it. Thank you so much for this most awesome recipe!

try wearing surgical gloves to prevent staining hands
OfftoShambala (5 years ago)
cant wait to try this recipe... the demo was well done... FYI: that teflon pot & aluminum foil are toxic... i'd suggest switiching to glass & ceramic cookware and cut the beets on a plate
theloneofficial (5 years ago)
Alia - this was amazing.... it could work with any herb really. Cilantro next time!

cookingwithalia (6 years ago)
@zuzaelomari in my list - I need couple of months and will be working on it :-)
Iris Gross (6 years ago)
If nothing else, I now know how to cook uncanned beets! Been wanting to know for years. Thank you!
sibeliustx (6 years ago)
@winniethemcfly I think taste perception of beets might be one of those that are genetically controlled, like broccoli or cilantro. I enjoy the flavors of most foods, and have loved every root vegetable I've tried... except beets. To me, they taste only like dirt, and that flavor overpowers all others, no matter the preparation. This recipe LOOKS wonderful, and I would love to try it. In fact, I may do that in spite of the fact odds are against me enjoying it. It never hurts to try again.
ChibiRanzie (6 years ago)
Hi Alia can i use lemon jucie instead of vinegar & by doing soo will it change the taste of the salad? Thank you ^^
ndlz1 (6 years ago)
It's also very good chopped small in a potato salad w/ mixed carrots & peas.
SoSoniLove (6 years ago)
It looks like meat :) And i also think bakhlava is a good idea!
amora amorA (6 years ago)
Hi alia can u please make baklava :) with Pistachios
MrKaerf (6 years ago)
Just wondering what the Moroccan name for this salad is?
SelenityLuz (6 years ago)
@winniethemcfly It's delicious! I use it almost every other day in my kitchen. But I bake it, not boil! But it's tasty anyway.
Meygya Aisha (1 year ago)
SelenityLuz how long does it take to roast it ?
sara46762 (6 years ago)
you can grate the boild beetroot and add to yogurt and make a pink yogurt...it tastes and looks wonderful
cookingwithalia (6 years ago)
@winniethemcfly I agree with mrfadi, beetroot has a full body, rich, and strong flavor - very earthy, a bit sweet. I dont think it tastes like anything else. It can be prepared in salads or roasted as a side dish, or even used for juices! it's really versatile and healthy.
STAN ILIKETHEWOK (6 years ago)
Looks very delicious!! Thx for this video.
rox8888 (6 years ago)
interesting I have tried the same salad in South south America just without the cumin....
Fadi Sarsak (6 years ago)
@winniethemcfly it's sweet and have deep taste of something i can't describe, beetroot is good source of sugar manufacturing, the taste incredible when you mix it with salt and pepper, we in Jordan & Palestine usually eat beetroot in coldest days in winter as tradition. am sure Alia will reply to you with better infos
Winnie Chow (6 years ago)
@mrfadi she didnt mention how it actually taste like. plus. my country dont sell beetroot
Fadi Sarsak (6 years ago)
@winniethemcfly listen to Alia and try it your self :)
Winnie Chow (6 years ago)
