Baked Beetroot.

This is one of those things that is so simple it’s barely a recipe, but it’s absolutely delicious so I’m sharing it with you anyway!


It’s late autumn here so it’s the time of year for warm, hearty meals. I am basically in love with any kind of baked/roasted vegetables, and this is no different.

just pre-heat the oven to 200C, pop in the washed beets, and walk away for 45 mins to an hour, or until the beets are soft all the way through when poked with a tester. Serve as a hot side dish with a schnitzel (of course, in Germany), or roast meat, or anything you like. or, if you’re like me, just chop them open, add a little cinnamon, a little butter, and a spoonful of cottage cheese, and eat 4 of them while barely pausing for breath. 


Note: if you gorge on them like I did, the next day you may think you’re dying but it’s just that we don’t metabolise the red colour very much. Sorry to be gross… Just a warning. Don’t let that keep you from eating them though – they’re super-healthy and oh so tasty!
