Beetroot & Green Curry Rice

This week I noticed that the leaves of the bunch of beetroot I bought last weekend started to fade. This is how I decided to go for this recipe. The beetroot will gently color the onion and the rice, an effect that will please your eyes. Please remember that the beetroot greens are an excellent source of calcium, iron, vitamin A and C. So, don’t throw them away, but adopt them with love into your eating routine.
