Bursting with colour and flavour, you’d be hard pressed to find a more vibrant veg than beetroot. Most of you would know beetroot from menus at your local burger joint, thankfully there is more to beetroot than sliced on a kiwi burger!
Beets are beautiful roasted. Their earthiness pairs well with the salty sharpness of goats’ cheese and the pepperiness of rocket; match with candied nuts or a buttery pastry. Puree for a brilliant smear or to create a dazzling dip. Or add to brownies or chocolate cake for a moistness and earthiness that matches perfectly with the richness of the cocoa flavour.
Create your own beetroot relish for a modern take that will go well on everything from a burger or gourmet sandwich to crostini or a cheese platter. Take it to the next level and add beetroot to your ferments - just think, bright purple sauerkraut.
