  1. This vegetarian side dish goes well with roast meats, or squeeze the garlic out of their skins and mix with the beetroot into some cooked couscous. Try it with a good glug of balsamic vinegar added to the roasting tin before cooking.

What's the perfect wine match?

Our friends at Majestic Wine recommend Behind Closed Doors Lisboa Red. A decadent, smooth palate integrates with dark fruits and vanilla. This big, powerful red easily stands up to the bold earthy notes of the roasted beetroot.
