Step 1

Beets: Put the beets and garlic cloves in a narrow fireproof dish, cover with half the olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and cover with non-stick paper or a lid. Bake the beets in a well-preheated oven at 200°C until soft.

Mix the honey, coriander, balsamic vinegar and the remaining olive oil well in a bowl and pour over the beets while baking for another 15 minutes. Finally, mash the beets with their juices and let them cool.
