Few raw vegetables are as beautiful as the chioggia beet. Not only are these root vegetables gorgeous but they are often a bit sweeter than your regular purple beet. Keep your eye out for them at your farmer’s market this Summer. Chioggia beets contain numerous health benefits but here are a few reasons to buy them today:

Why are chioggia beets good for you?

Rich in folic acid.

Loaded in fiber.

High in potassium.

Excellent source of betacyanin, a powerful antioxidant that provides the bright red color

Good source of iron.

Don’t like turning the oven on in the warm weather? Me neither. Instead, a local farmer at the Fulton Street Farmer’s Market suggested one of her favorite ways to prepare chioggia beets: pickled quickly with lemon juice and olive oil. She had me at lemon juice.

Your fork is waiting.
