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. 


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


  • 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.
