This healthy carpaccio is made from beets and packed with flavor!
Big thank you to WOT reader Gabriela Siotto Dedolph who shared her amazing recipe for this delicious Healthy Beet Carpaccio!
Carpaccio (pronounced “car-PAH-chee-oh”) is a traditional Italian appetizer that is usually made with raw beef. ‘Carpaccio’ really refers to any thinly sliced raw meat or fish. However, this recipe is 100% vegetarian and uses thinly sliced beets instead of meat!
Serve it up as a healthy appetizer at your next dinner party or at brunch. This light dish is sure to please!
