This was inspired by a Nigel Slater recipe that involved a lot of standing at the stove and stirring. Being a lazy and busy man, I shoved it all in the oven and relied on a bit of vigerous stirring at the end. Once again, a really good non-stick roasting tin is the way forward here.

You will need

  • Enough carrots, skins in, cut into inch sized chunks to cover half the roasting tin
  • Enough beetroot, scrubbed but skins in, cut into inch sized chunks to cover the other half
  • Four cloves of garlic, peeled
  • A tablespoon of olive oil
  • Enough quality sausage to cover half the tray
  • Three glugs of pomegranate molasses
  • Three glugs of red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

Do

  • Toss the beetroot, carrot and garlic in the oil in the roasting tin
  • Give it a good shake of rock salt
  • Lay the sausage on the top
  • Put it in the over for 30 minutes
  • Add the pomegranate molasses and vinegar, give it all the vigerous shake and stir (aim to rough up the edges of the vegetables)
  • Return to the oven for another 20 minutes of so
  • Once you’re ready to serve snip though the sausages into bite sized chunks and scrape up all the good sticky bits
  • Serve with some crusty bread and a good dose of black pepper and maybe some more rock salt

Result

Savoury as all heck.
