Recipe for 4 people
Preparation: 10 min
Start by cleaning the beetroot under a stream of water, taking care to remove all soil.
Prepare 2 kg of TRAD Y SEL grey sea salt. Place a thick 4cm layer of coarse salt in a baking tray, place the beetroot, and completely cover with the rest of the coarse salt. Be very generous with the salt covering.
Cook in the oven at 140°C (Th. 5) for 2 hours. Let it cool for 40 minutes then break the salt crust and remove the beetroot's skin.
Cut into four and serve hot with just-melted butter with chopped chervil, tarragon and coriander. To finish, add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, freshly ground pepper and a few pinches of TRAD Y SEL flower of salt before tasting.
