When is a beetroot not a beetroot.....

The answer is.... when its a chioggia. This weeks lovely bunch of beetroot turned out to be a lovely bunch of chioggia beetroot. I did not notice until I had cooked them.
I love the colour of them, especially the stripey rings.
I added spring onions, salt, pepper, olive oil and a tiny amount of red wine vinegar. Yum, yum, yum. Not as good as normal beetroot, but almost.
After leaving them to soak up the flavours for a couple of hours, they changed colour to this lovely pink.
