Thank you to Storm Ashdown who you can find on Instagram at whatstormeats for this recipe. We love to see sous vide being used for vegetables, they become so tender and delicious, beetroot are packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and cooking them sous vide also means that none of the goodness is lost. The pul biber pepper adds a distinctive fruitiness to the beetroot but can easily be replaced with chilli and paprika. The beetroot is great as a side to fish such as roasted salmon but it keeps brilliantly in the fridge in an airtight container.
