Baked Beetroot

A simple, but different style of cooking beetroot, baked in a parcel.


  • Take your beetroot, scrub well and quarter.
  • Either make use a small baking dish, or a double piece of aluminium foil double thickness to make a parcel.
  • Place the Beetroot in the dish with several whole cloves of garlic, a quartered small onion and a quartered fennel bulb.
  • Add a good sprinkling of basil leaves. Season well with Black Pepper and, if you wish, Salt.
  • Toss the vegetables in a good slosh of olive oil and red wine vinegar, or Balsamic Vinegar.
  • Seal well with a foil lid - or if a parcel, bring the sides up and seal well, leaving space to steam.
  • Place in a preheated 200c oven and bake for about 1 hour.
