So simple this can hardly be called a recipe. However I've included it because for years I have bought the vacuum packed beetroot from the chiller section under the premise that to produce it at home would be messy and complicated. Not true! Also I promise you as well as being healthier, no unnecessary processing, additives and vacuum wrapping, they taste better too!
  • Beetroot, raw
  • Tinfoil
  1. Preheat your oven to 375F (190C)
  2. Remove any stalks, leaves from the beetroot (these can be used in salads if desired)
  3. Peel the beetroot and wrap in tinfoil (if you are doing more than one beetroot I advise wrap separately)
  4. Place on a baking sheet and roast for approximately 1hr (check after 45 mins, insert a metal skewer and ensure beetroot feels tender in the centre before removing)
  5. Enjoy hot or cold, with maybe a teaspoon of cider vinegar.
