Beetroot is so often eaten throughout the world’s Jewish communities, from Eastern Europe to eastern India, that it is often described as a “Jewish vegetable”. Beetroot is adored in Greece, too, and it is classically served with this fragrant garlic sauce, skorthalia. Of course, some Jewish communities in Eastern Europe liked garlic so much that it was the garlic that could have been called the “Jewish vegetable”.
