Roasted beetroots

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The internet is filled with roasted beetroot recipes, but I feel like posting mine here as well.

A very simply side dish to make, but roasting takes about 1-2 hours. All you need is some beetroots and some sea salt. You can roast as many as you want or need. In this recipe I have roasted only three, which is just enough for two or three diners.

PORTION: 2-3 persons
TIME TO MAKE: about 1½ hours

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 pretty small or medium-sized beetroots, unpeeled
  • sea salt

Wash the beetroots and place them in a roasting tray, root side down. Let them cook in the oven at 200°C (392°F) for about 1½ hours.

They do not look very pretty, when they come out from the oven, do they? Still the beautiful red color is hiding there under the roasted cover. You can use a wooden stick to be sure the roots are ready: if it enters easily they are cooked and ready. When the beetroots have cooled down, peel them and cut them just the way you want.
