Method:

  • Peel and quarter the beetroot and the onions. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and gently saute the onion quarters.
  • Add the fresh rosemary and cook for one minute to release the flavour of the herb.

  • Remove the lid and simmer for a further 15 minutes until the liquid reduces to a glaze.
