Hidden Beetroot

I was tidying up in the veg garden at the weekend when I came across these little fellas hiding under some weeds.
 This made my mouth water, I love beetroot. Hopefully I think I might have talked my wife into making one of my favourite dishes this week - Beetroot Tart Tatin.
Crumbled with feta cheese on top and served with mash its meal that really doesn't need any meat. If you want to make it the recipe we use is from River Cottage and can be found here.
I love beetroot in every form!

  1. That looks wonderful, I really will have to give it a go, I have beetroot AND pastry :-)

    Don't you find that 'found' veggies taste the sweetest and the best, I once forgot all about an outside tomato plant, it was in a far veggie bed. It had no watering throughout months of sunshine and no staking so it trailed along the ground, when it was rescued from it's entanglement of weeds and onions the fruit it bore, although tiny were the sweetest and most flavoursome tomatoes I have ever eaten.

    Oh to be able to replicate abandonment on a regular basis.

    1. I think I might have nailed it with the abandonment issue! They say chillis also thrive on being left to their own devices and tey get hotter if they haven't had a constant supplpy of water - something I should be able to do I think, in fact it might be why when I grow chillis they're too hot for me to eat!

  4. The beet root would have remined hidden if I found it in my garden..the only veg I absolutely cannot like...since babyhood! But I do love to have "volunteer" plants in my garden. Hope you got that beetroot tart!

  6. Beetroot is originally a seaside vegetable from Asia. They grow really well if you sprinkle salt around them. We sampled the Borsch when we went to Polandlast August. It's strange to drink a cold soup. But it's very good. Use to grow them for my late mother. Strange how a vegetable makes you miss your mother. Think most vegetables came originally from the Middle East, Russia, Greece and South America. Yet we think they are native vegetables.

    1. I didn't know that about the humble old beetroot! I guess we should all learn where different veg comes from and then when we have a problem growing it we might be able to see the root of the problem. My brother and I were talking about native veg the other day and how little of it there really is!

  7. My mother forced me to eat beets as a child. I still have an aversion to them even though I know they are very healthy. I just cannot choke them down. Glad you find them so favorable.

  9. That looks incredible, I will have to find a good recipe for it sometime. I will probably make a few adjustments to it, but I think that my Wife would really enjoy it.
