A few days ago we had the wonderful savoury caramelised onion and beetroot tart, well now get ready for beetroots on a sweeter scale! The last time I used veg in a brownie recipe it DID NOT go well (take my advice, never use kale in a brownie recipe), but I was pleasantly surprised with these. I got the recipe from BBCGoodFood, as usual, it was simple to follow and used basic ingredients but it does use both an electric mixer and a food processor, you do need the food processor for this one as you have to whizz down the beetroot into the mix so it combines just right with all the other flavours and textures. So, if you’ve got your mixer and food processor/blender at the ready then let’s go!
First of all, we need to peel the beetroot, I know some people get really hung up on the fact that beetroot stains your skin and clothes, which it does. If you are worried just wear gloves but I found that as soon as I washed my hands with soap and water the dye just came right off, even after I let it dry on, so although I wouldn’t risk it with your clothes I don’t think you’ll have an issue getting it off your hands. Take the roots and leaves off both ends and peel the beetroots then place them in a microwave-safe bowl with a couple tbsp of water.
