Beetroot Brownies

Super moist and Fudgy … these dense chocolate brownies that are enriched with beetroot are perfect for anytime indulgence.

I was searching for inspiration for recipes that used beetroot. Not really a fan of the vegetable myself, I have rarely used it in my kitchen as a main ingredient. So, my idea of using this super healthy vegetable was only limited to salads.

I had never heard of Beetroot Brownies before and on chancing upon the recipe was really amazed and desperate to try it , at the same time. I finalized on this one for the contest without a thought.

The recipe is very easy and just like any brownie recipe except it uses a decent amount of beetroot puree that ends up making the brownie moist and gooey.

The beetroot puree lends a dark red hue to the brownie that I really liked. As for taste, the brownies do taste different and flavorful and it’s almost impossible to make out they contain beetroot.
