    Beetroot relish

    I’m in love with the earthy, rich flavour of beetroot, and nothing beats (see what I did there…) a tasty relish to go with crackers, cheese, veggie sticks, dukkah and sourdough bread for a rustic nibbles platter. This recipe is one inspired by a few other recipes online for relishes, but iv’e adapted it to be my own. Its also beautiful spread on a piece of crusty wholegrain toast in the morning with a nice cup of tea.

    Pear, walnut and beetroot salad

    Beetroot has to be one of my all time favourite root vegetables, it has a rich, earthy flavour, and is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It also makes a killer salad when roasted, alas i’ve come up with this hearty pear, walnut and beetroot salad, which is a great year round salad. It makes a great addition to any summer BBQ, or a simple, fresh and hearty side salad during the winter months. I like to make this on a Sunday and take it for lunch on weekdays. I always look forward to lunch whenever I bring it. You could also add feta cheese if you wanted some cheese,…

    Rosemary baked beet chips

    I’m just in love with the rich, earthy flavour of beetroot. These crunchy little beet chips are perfect with homegrown rosemary and a dash of sea salt. I find these are a great summer afternoon snack, great with a cold ginger beer or cider. I’ll be serving these tomorrow for Australia day, and possibly with a chili garlic avocado dip. Make sure you check on the beet chips regularly because they are prone to burning. Ingredients: 2 medium beetroot, washed and dried 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, roughly chopped Sea salt Olive oil spray Method: Line 2 flat trays with baking paper and leave aside. Heat oven to 180 degrees…
