Happiness is making Healthy Whole-wheat flour Beetroot Pastry for a valentine celebration.
This pastry is fluffy and moist and very easy and quick to prepare. It is a great way to get some veggies into your diet while still enjoying a sweet treat.
I love beetroot and try to use it in my recipes very often because of nutritional values and also a beautiful natural colour.
Everyone, who tasted it was surprised that such a delicious treat could be made from a vegetable many don’t like.
