Season well, and toss together so all the beetroot is thoroughly coated in the dressing. Roast for 25 mins until the beetroot is sticky and glazed.

@Dilys: I usually cook it for about 35 to 40 mins, but rapped in a tin foil. You can check it from time to time and you'll know when it's done.

used raw baby homegrown beetroot sliced in half and cooked as per the recipe. The result was very tasty and the sticky dressing did not overpower the earthy flavour of the beetroot. would definately make this again.

We have a bumper crop of beetroot at the allotment this year, and rather than pickling all of it, I decided to try out a few different recipes: this one takes the prize for flavour and ease. I made a couple of changes: I used raw beetroot, and I added some goats cheese in the last few minutes of baking: devine!

Yum - really tasty and straightforward to make. We were going to save some for the next day but ate it all. Had it with home made chicken rissoles, new potatoes and spinach. Will make again when beetroot next appears in the veg box.

Have made this time and time again love it. It's always a big hit with roast bird of whatever description (other than the slang one!!)

Beautifully sweet, piquant and earthy. Very easy to pop in the oven with the sunday roast. Cooked this alongside roast chicken, roast potatoes and green veg.
