Beetroot With Orange Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Karin...

Beetroot done this way is divine! Most people I find are so pleasantly surprised when they discover the gorgeous flavour of this dish. I lost count of the number of times I've written the recipe out for friends! It's a real winner! A 440g can of beetroot can be substituted for cooked beetroot - just drain and heat through in the sauce. The fresh beetroot takes a while to cook, but it's worth it!

How delightful to have a tasty side veggie so different, and low sodium to boot. I put lemon juice (instead of salt) in the water to boil the beetroot. Served 'em with my own Fish and Chips and Chip Shop Curry Sauce. This one gets a blue ribbon from me.
