Sticky, chewy, sweet and nutty, caramelized beetroot. This goes perfectly as a side to any roast dinner. Or serve with some good soft goats cheese. Yum! This recipe doesn't use exact quantities for the beetroot marinade as beetroot comes in all shapes and sizes. You can't really go wrong though. You just need enough oil and vinegar to coat the beetroot.
