Beetroot Recipes

Beetroot is a very versatile and tasty vegetable. You can roast it as a side dish, add it to salads and even bake it in chocolate cakes to add depth of flavour. The earthy yet slightly sweet flavour of beetroot is a great autumnal treat. Look for beetroot that is smooth-skinned and aim to buy beetroots with the tops intact, as the leaves can also be cooked (but should be used within a couple of days of the purchase). Beetroot goes well with goat’s cheese, walnuts, balsamic vinegar, Crème fraîche, beef and duck.
