When I was a kid, beetroots were one vegetable I couldn’t STAND. I have no idea why, not sure what was wrong with me back then as now I’m OBSESSED.

Beetroots are such a versatile vegetable. They have a subtle, earthy sweetness that’s transferrable to all kinds of dishes. Recently I made this beetroot risotto which is just as striking in flavour as it is in colour.

Vegan beet carpaccio, a simple summer dish that let's these beautiful ingredients shine

This beetroot carpaccio is a fun, vegan take on beef carpaccio, that really just let’s the beetroot shine. Sometimes, it’s nice to enjoy these beautiful, fresh ingredients for what they are, so drizzling on some high quality olive oil, sea salt, black pepper and a few herbs is all it needs.

Beetroot Carpaccio

Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Servings: 2 people


  • 2-3 Small Beetroots (any variety)
  • 1-2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • Fresh Basil Leaves
  • Fresh Watercress


  • Shave the beetroot finely. It’s easiest to use a mandolin to do this, but if you don’t have one just use a very sharp knife (and mind your fingers!!)
  • Lay out the slices on a plate, drizzle with Olive oil, and sprinkle on some good quality sea salt, cracked black pepper, basil leaves and watercress.
  • Enjoy fresh.

  1. Same here, I hated beetroot and asparagus as a child and now these are two of my favorite vegetables. The carpaccio looks really delicious.
