Tips about beets:

At Brogaard we usually make a root vegetable mix in a pan and not in the oven. We like the vegetables to maintain a bit of bite.

We make a mixture of carrots, parsnips and perhaps Hamburg root parsley, along with radicchio and yellow beets. The mixture is fried in a wok with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar, which is applied with a baster, while frying, along with a little acacia honey,



Peel the beetroots and grate them on the coarse side of a grater. Chop the onion and garlic. Mix the grated beetroot and the chopped onion and garlic together in a bowl. Mix in the cream cheese and season with salt and pepper. Place the mixture in an oven proof dish and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 degrees. Take the dish out of the oven. Sprinkle with cheese and bake for a further 10 minutes.

Serve as a side for various dishes.

Ingredients – for 3 people
600 g beetroot
3 onions
2 cloves of garlic
150 g cream cheese (possibly with herbs)
