Beetroot – Vegetable Rhyme
Beetroot! Yummy and so colourful too. Have some of this sweet vegetable any way you want.
I am the bulbous root,
The reddish-purple beetroot,
I grow under the ground,
As a colorant I’m renowned!
I make all your dishes colorful and bright,
But don’t think I’m a turnip, when you see me in white!
My long stalks are a purple or green,
My big leaves are a bright green,
They are nutritious too,
Have them in salads and stews.
Have me steamed or raw, grated or diced,
Have my juice weekly, once, twice or thrice.
In minerals I am wealthy,
And fiber so healthy!
I give you energy,
Of infections keep you free!
I am full of vitamins especially folate,
To treat heart diseases and anemia I’m great!
