  • 1kg small raw beetroot , peeled and halved
  • 2 onions , peeled and quartered
  • 10-12 baby leeks , trimmed
  • 4large garlic cloves , peeled
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 bay leaves
  • about 100ml balsamic vinegar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Heat a heavy-based oven roasting pan on top of the stove and toss in the vegetables and garlic. Sprinkle with the oil. Stir until they start to brown. Add the herbs, sprinkle over the vinegar and season well.
