From plot holder Cathy Kiddle.


  • cooked beetroot
  • cheese sauce
  • gratin topping ie. crumbs, seasoning etc. (optional)


  1. Cook the beetroot in boiling water until it is tender, then peel and cut into chunks.
  2. While the beetroot is cooking, prepare a white sauce and add grated cheese to it.
  3. Put the beetroot chunks into an ovenproof dish and pour the sauce over it.
  4. Add gratin topping if you wish.
  5. Put into a medium oven and cook for 20 minutes or so.

It’s a delicious, sweet, pink, hot veg. dish.
