Here are the ingredients you'll need:
- 3 raw beetroot (depending on the burrata versus beetroot ratio—could be more or less)
- 1 burrata
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Good salt (Maldon or similar)
- Bitter leaves (Castelfranco or radicchio, for example, but you could simply go for rocket)
- Toasted walnuts
Here's the method:
- Preheat your oven to 180C.
- Cut your beetroot into quarters (or even into 8ths if they are big); no need to peel them.
- Add 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.
- Roasted for about 20 minutes or until the beetroots are cooked.
- Leave to cool for 10-15 minutes
Serve with the burrata, Citizens of Soil extra virgin olive oil, pinch of salt, leaves and toasted nuts.
