Market ingredient: Beetroot
Deliciousness: Sweet sweet beetroot
Did The Beard like it? “It was fresh & beetroot-y, but needed more ooomph”. Quote unquote.
A quick and easy one this week, utilising one of my favourite vegetables of all time – beetroot. I can’t actually get enough of the stuff. My American colleague thinks I’m crazy, that all Aussies-and-their-passion-for-beets are crazy. No no, JN, it is YOU that is crazy. And I’m talking about home-roasted beetroots, the kind that stain everything a deep reddy-purple, not their pale, briny tinned cousins. Roasting your own beetroots creates such an intensely sweet flavour that seems to be perfectly combined with the also luscious sweetness of roast garlic. Delicious.
