Glazed beetroot in the microwave
This is an unusual way to serve beets and much better than the cold pickled variety!
beets - think in the region of 2 to 3 small ones per person
1 onionBalsamic vinegar
Orange juice White wine
Cook beets in water with the skins on Drain when cooked and cool
Skin beets and chop into small cubes
Chop onion and cook in microwave for about 2 minutes with a little oil (I use a Pyrex dish)
Place beets with cooked onions and sprinkle with balsamic vinegar
Just cover with white wine and orange juice - mixed in equal quantities
Cover dish and cook for 5 minutes on high. If there is too much liquid cook a little longer until you get a syrupy sauce. If too dry add a little water and heat through
Serve with pork Schnitzels or chicken breasts and a baked potato or mashed potatoes.
An avocado and olive salad goes well with this.
