Beetroot Tarte Tatin

Beetroot is surprisingly high in vitamin C, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, and plant based iron and has been associated with many health benefits, including low blood pressure, improved blood flow, and when eaten in combination with a healthy lifestyle, risk reduction of many cancers.



6 small pre-cooked fresh beetroots thickly sliced
1 sheet thawed frozen puff pastry
8 basil leaves
50 grams crumbled feta cheese
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
15 grams butter
1 tablespoon crushed walnuts

Beetroot Tarte Tatin Directions

Preheat the oven to 200C fan forced

Grease a 24 cm pie tin. Add butter, sugar, vinegar and beetroot to a heavy based fry pan and simmer and stir for approximately 15 mins until the liquid is thick.  

Beetroots may crumble and the sauce caramelises. Let cool.

Place the beetroot into the pie dish and top with pastry.  Bake for approximately 25 minutes until the pastry is golden and puffed.

When ready remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a serving plate.  Top the beetroot with basil leaves, crumbled feta and walnuts.

Recipe notes

Tip: if your hands become stained from the beetroot, try rubbing them with the juice of half a lemon.
