Les vergers Boiron Beetroot – Yoghurt – Raspberry

Finish your dinner with this delicious yoghurt-beetroot cannelloni, accompanied by a beetroot meringue.

The earthy flavors of the beetroot combine well with the fruitiness of the raspberry and the yoghurt. The sweet taste of the beetroot goes along well with the sweetness of the raspberry and the sourness of the raspberry gives freshness to the dish.
