Beet Raita

Some lucky members sampled this recipe in Rachel’s cooking demo last session. This is a great side dish, and is especially good for calming the burn of a spicy main dish.


  • 2 cups whole milk yogurt (we prefer Straus brand)
  • 1 cup shredded beets
  • 1/4 each cilantro and parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cooked white potatoes (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped


Combine ingredients. Have fun with this one–you can really add anything that sounds good to you in a raita (cucumber, radish, carrots, spinach, etc.)
