Beetroot Relish

Access Allied Health - Tuesday, December 05, 2017

This is a versatile relish with four simple ingredients.  We love it because it adds that little bit of zest to the simple mid-week meal or everyday lunch.  Try it with our lamb burgers, added to your daily salad, or popped onto the humble salad sandwich....wherever it goes, we love it!  The relish itself does take a bit of time to prepare but you can store it in sterile jars in the fridge...for use weeks or months down the track....if it lasts that long!  We hope you enjoy one of our simple favourites.


2 tablespoons olive oil
3 large beetroots - peeled and grated
3 medium sized brown onions
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper for seasoning


  1. Peel and slice onions thinly.  Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large pot, add onion and fry until golden and soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. If you have a food processor with a grater function, pull it out to grate the beetroot as this is the step that takes a bit of time.  Add grated beetroot, brown sugar, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt and some cracked pepper to the pot with the cooked onion.   Stir to combine. Bring to the boil then simmer until the beetroot is cooked and tender and the liquid has reduced to next to nothing.  This will take about 30 - 40 minutes.  Leave to cool.
  3. Once the beetroot relish is cool, spoon into prepared sterilized jars and refrigerate. This recipe will fill about 3 x 500g jars.  1 serve = 1 tablespoon.
