Paul Svensson's beetroot, sriracha dressing and yoghurt.


  • 300 g of small beetroot with tops, preferably organic
  • 50 ml distilled pickling vinegar
  • 50 ml honey
  • 2 teaspoon fennel seeds

For serving:

  • 200 ml drained goat yoghurt

  1. Cut the beetroot tops off a little bit from the root. Cut the leaves from the stems. Scrub the beetroots well and cook them in about 1 litre of lightly salted water until they are soft.
  2. Once beetroots are soft add the stems and boil for about 2 minutes. Remove the beetroot and stems and cool in cold water.
