Roasted beets with fresh raspberry vinaigrette and toasted buckwheat

Roasted beets with fresh raspberry vinaigrette and toasted buckwheat

This i the perfect side dish for Swedish midsummer which is coming up in a few days time. To be honest its the perfect side dish for any occasion, year around. Roasted beets tossed in a fresh raspberry vinaigrette sprinkled with toasted buckwheat. Really simple, and really delicious! Choose beets in season, that will give the best flavour (and it's a good thing for our planet), and let this pretty side salad brighten up your table!

Roasted beets with fresh raspberry vinaigrette and toasted buckwheat

Ingredients

1,2 kg mixed beets (use the ones that are in season now, and that you'll find in your grocery store) 

1 tbsp cold pressed rapeseed oil

2 pinches mineral salt 

1 pinch freshly ground black peppar 

 

Raspberry vinaigrette

2 tbsp white vine vinegar 

1 tbsp cold pressed rapeseed oil 

1/2 tsp whole fennel seeds, ground up slightly 

10 fresh raspberries

mineral salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 

 

Topping

1/2 dl dried buckwheat groats 

cress (optional)

 

How to

Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. 

Peel and cut the beets in chunks. Put on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and peppar. Stir together and roast the beets in the oven for about 30 minutes, until beets are tender but still got a crispy core.  

Mash the raspberries with a fork and whisk together with white wine vinegar, 1 tbsp cold pressed rapeseed oil, 1/2 tsp fennel seeds (lightly grind them first) and salt to taste. 

Rinse the buckwheat groats with hot (as in was just boiling) water. Drain well. Toast in a hot, dry frying pan until dry and crisp. 

Let your roasted beets cool down slightly, then toss together with the raspberry vinaigrette. Topp with buckwheat and cress. Enjoy!
