The family descended this weekend and we had eleven here for Sunday lunch. I won't bore you with the details of everything we had to eat but I have to to tell you about a new discovery.
I recently had a beetroot dip on a mezze plate at a restaurant. Being rather fond of beetroot and having a bumper crop again this year, I thought it would be fun to track down a recipe. Whilst browsing through Nigella Lawson's "Feast" on my way to finding the Guinness cake recipe I spotted a Beetroot Puree and thought it might just fit the bill.
Oh boy! Did it! This has to be one of the best things I've tasted in a long time... and even those family members who professed not to like beetroot thought it tasted pretty darn fine! In fact I'm off to have the left overs with a little warm pitta bread... heaven on a plate (followed by Guinness cake of course!)
