Beetroot is packed with essential nutrients such as fibre, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C. It can also help to lower blood pressure and increase blood flow. However, it’s not always easy to encourage young children to eat them. Therefore, it can work really well when they are added to recipes and offered in a fun and creative manner – showcasing their vibrant red colour.
These beetroot pancakes were created for Valentine’s day. My children and hubby decided to roll them up and create colourful and delicious pancake skewers. They can also be served rolled up, cut into shapes or as traditional pancakes, topped with maple syrup, coconut cream, berries, crushed nuts or offered as savoury pancakes, and topped with sour cream, grilled mushroom or grated cheese.
