Masło Buraczane, Beetroot Butter

Aluminum Foil
Sheet Pan
Food Processor


Preheat the oven to 350º F.


Trim the tops and tips of the beets, wash, and pat dry. Place the beets in a square of aluminum foil, sprinkle with half of the salt, and drizzle with oil. Seal the aluminum, place on a sheet pan, and roast for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes.


Once cool, peel the beets, and add to the food processor with the butter and the remaining salt. With the Microplane, grate the clove of garlic into the mixture. Process at high speed until completely combined, pausing occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl with the silicone spatula.


Transfer beetroot butter to a small bowl, and chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  • 2 medium beets
  • 5g/1 teaspoon Kosher salt, divided
