We were given some lovely veg from our neighbour's allotment, yes we have one too but stuck to spuds, garlic and shallots this year. We were given beetroot and lettuce, so I scrabbled around and found a slowcook recipe which sounded delicious! The warm beetroot and beans, with the cold cucumber yoghurt and coriander was just amazing, we served it on lettuce with a pork chop, perfect for a crisp Summer evening, or rather a British Summer's evening :)
1 tbs olive oil
500g raw beetroot, peeled and diced
2 x 410g cans of Borlotti Beans (rinsed and drained)
450ml vegetable stock
1/4 cucumber finely diced
200g natural yoghurt, though I used Greek for preference
1 lettuce of choice (used Romaine)
4 salad onions thinly sliced
4 tbs chopped coriander
Bring to the boil, stirring, then transfer to the slow cooker. Cover with the lid and cook on low for 3 to 5 hrs or until beetroot is tender.
Stir well and lift the pot out of the cooker.
