Beetroot used to be such a maligned vegetable, as some of us remember from the overuse of it in school dinners,  but here it provides the basis of a family meal which cost pennies to produce.

Dawn: It was quite labour intensive, especially as the beetroot is always messy to prepare.

Andrew: Yes, even with a food processor, you have a lot of washing up, but the end product is quite amazing. 

Ingredients

150g beetroot- raw, and peeled

2 tbsp olive oil

One can (400g) of chickpeas or the equivalent weight of dried chickpeas, soaked overnight and cooked thoroughly

Salt and pepper to season

More olive oil to cook

Method

  • Either grate the beetroot using the course side of a grater or use the grater setting on your food rocessor.

Dawn: We suggest you use rubber gloves and wear an apron. Beetroot juice will stain your clothes and your skin.
