Seasonal Hero Ingredient: Beetroot

September sees the ruby red bulbs of beetroot available in abundance. It’s been said that beetroot is the marmite of the vegetable world. Some love its earthy flavour and health-giving properties and others chastise its ability to turn almost everything pink.

Here at Godminster we think it is a beautiful autumnal addition to any plate and we have a couple of suggestions that pair our cheese with blushing beetroot.

Creamy Pasta Bake with Godminster Cheddar, Smoked Ham and Beetroot – a gentle introduction to the wonderful world of beetroot, here the indulgent pasta bake enjoys a little health kick thanks to cubes of beetroot being stirred through before being baked until golden and bubbling.
