A few cheats for days when you frankly don't have the time or inclination! You can bag pre-bagged beetroot salads from most supermarket chiller sections, make the salad dressing in larger quantities and store in air-tight jar in your fridge for up to 3 months. Buy frozen aduki and edamame beans, defrost and bring to room temperature before using.
