    What do you do with beetroot?

    If I buy it cooked I grate 1 with a carrot and some onion and add a teaspoon of balsamic or red wine vinegar

    if I buy it raw I tend to roast it with orange juice and or balsamic vinegar

    pre-SW I even tried Hugh F-W's beetroot brownies (prefer normal brownies TBH)

    does anyone have any other ideas for beets?

    thanks

    You can make a beautiful pink soup with it - served chilled generally I think. I also just love cooled cooked beetroot chopped up in a salad.

    I love Beetroot and apple salad. I buy the chilled, cooked ones, chop them into cubes, cube an apple too and mix with either Ex light Mayo (and syn the mayo) or if i have made syn free Mayo i mix it with that. Lovely with a jacket spud or cold meats.

    Syn free mayo

    6oz very low fat fromage frais
    2 tbsp cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    2 tsp canderal
    Mustard powder blended with a little water
    Salt and black pepper

    Mix all ingredients until smooth

    Store in fridge for up to 5 days
