“Beetroot done this way is divine! Most people I find are so pleasantly surprised when they discover the gorgeous flavour of this dish. I lost count of the number of times I've written the recipe out for friends! It's a real winner! A 440g can of beetroot can be substituted for cooked beetroot - just drain and heat through in the sauce. The fresh beetroot takes a while to cook, but it's worth it!”
