Beetroot V Rhubarb

Postby The Prof » 21 Mar 2013, 20:01

I wouldn't think anybody would claim either as their favourite food item but if push came to shove which one you going to call for?

Beetroot is very good for you. We juice it sometimes. Scares the crap out of you initially when you go for a pee afterwards, but you get used to that.

Can't stand beetroot.

Rhubarb is okay.

Rhubarb had the better theme tune.

We had a juicer for a while until I broke it. Freshly juiced beet root and kale is delicious.

Beet root crumble isn't as good as rhubarb crumble though.

I like beetroot soup and I've also had beetroot cake which was very delicious.

Rhubarb is the fruit equivalent of the Devil's own vegetable, asparagus. Yeeeuuuuuuchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I love both, but beetroot is probably the more verastile: great in soup, roasted, juiced, salads, cakes, works perfectly with goats cheese in tartlets, and I believe it is meant to be good for your liver too!

I love both very much, but if pushed hard, would go for rhubarb. Great stewed, in a crumble or as a fool

I don't know if I can separate the two. Beetroot is marvellous - but rhubarb crumble, oh god. Oh god.

We don't seem to be able to get decent beets here, and rhubarb is like hens teeth.

I might have to go equal voting in this.

Beetroot.
