Aegean Beetroot Tzatziki, Beetroots are the up and coming superfood, with proven benefits and a vast wealth of nutritional value. It is important to always buy organic beetroots as they are a root vegetable. This variation on the classic tzatziki is one of my favorites and you can serve it as a salad on its own, as a meze or as a dip alongside meat dishes with some oven toasted pita bread.
Looking for a more traditional tzatziki or you just don’t like beetroots? Have a look at my Zucchini Tempura with Tzatziki recipe for my authentic tzatziki recipe.

Put the plastic-wrap (cling film) in water before lining the loaf tin. This will make it stick to the sides of the tin easier.
