Bright Beetroot and Crunchy Carrots

Vegetables are more tolerable when they're cooked in a certain way, or presented in a more fun manner, than just plonking them on a plate. To make use of the earth vegetables which are now in season in the UK, I've cooked a few carrots, and beetroot in an easy-to-eat, fun way.



I am determined to make the humble vegetable a friend to my niece and nephew, who really struggle with root veggies - beetroot in particular. Be prepared for pink-stained hands, pink-stained carrots, and a nutrient-rich side dish.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
1 Beetroot bulb
3 Carrots
Handful of Kale (optional)
Sprig Parsley
Sprig Thyme
Chunks of cheddar cheese
Tsp Coconut oil
Tsp Olive oil

Method
Thoroughly wash the beeroot and slice it into 'chip' sized chunks.



Place in a saucepan and boil for 10 minutes.



Wash the carrots and halve.



Place in the same saucepan as the beetroot for the last 5 minutes of cooking.



Pink carrots are just what you want - any sort of colour associated with Barbie, toys, or general 'playing', go down a treat.

Remove the vegetables from the saucepan and place in a griddle/frying pan with the oil and all of the seasoning.




Cook the vegetables over a medium heat for 10 minutes.



Coconut oil is the perfect fat - it allows the nutrients of the carrots to be absorbed more easily.

Remove the carrots and beetroot from the griddle pan and arrange on a plate.



I like to arrange the vegetables like a grumpy face, so the little ones don't see beetroot, and carrots, but something they can enjoy eating.



Carve out two small knobs of cheese using a knife.



Add the two small pieces of cheese to the beetroot 'eyes' of the dish.



The cheese makes a nice additive, and cheese with beetroot is a fantastic pairing.

When I served my niece a small plate of these snacks she exclaimed: "Look Auntie I'm eating the nose!". I took that as a good sign.
