In Russia, beetroot are on just about every menu. To preserve their colour and nutrients, do not peel or cut them before cooking; just scrub them gently.

cook's tip

Ideally, cook beetroot a day ahead. Chill, covered, until ready to use. If fresh beetroot is unavailable, use canned whole baby beetroot, drained.
