My favourite way to cook beetroot is to roast it in the oven. Roasting intensifies the flavour and colour which only makes it even more delicious.

Roast beetroot can be used in any of the recipes below. Roat beetroot keeps for up to a week if covered and stored in the refrigerator but does not freeze.

    Not all beets have to be purple, they come in many colours and one which is really lovely is the golden yellow beetroot. This summery vegetable is fabulous with pasta and fresh herbs as in this recipe.

    You can use traditional beetroot in this recipe but it will turn the pasta and everything else pink which can look rather pretty.
