紅菜頭Beetroot



說到近年最熱門的蔬菜,除了羽衣甘藍菜之外,就一定是紅菜頭。平日十分容易在街市或超市找到它們的踪影。但很難找到的紅菜頭連菜葉,要知道紅菜頭的菜葉比紅菜頭本身營養還好,所以不要把它扔掉。健康概念從香港小農引入的有機紅菜頭(連菜葉)一定唔可以錯過,試過就知道分別。


怎樣選擇靚的紅菜頭? 記住揀深色嘅,不只根部(即紅菜頭個頭),連成棵連葉都要深色,千祈唔好帶黃;摸落要實淨,唔好皺皮;體積都唔好太大,約拳頭大小就最好。切開後會見到一個個年輪的圖樣,汁液帶紫紅色,同人體血色相近,這個紅菜頭就一定是甜的。


烹煮方法: 很多人都會怕紅菜頭的泥味,用烤或煲的方法,會去除紅菜頭的泥味;或在打果露時,加入濃味水果,如香蕉、蘋果、芒果等等,都能帶出紅菜頭的甜味和漂亮的顏色。而紅菜頭葉只需輕輕用滾水煮30秒左右便可。


營養價值: 紅菜頭葉及紅菜頭皆具有豐富的葉酸,對孕婦尤其重要;本身帶有甜味的紅菜頭還有降血壓、高抗氧化、高鈣質、鐵質和鎂質,並含有豐富的維他命A和C,當然生食的效果最好。
