TATIN OF SWEET BEETS AND GINGER

1. To make the pastry, place the flours and butter in a food processor and whiz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Pulse in the egg and enough cold water to bind the dough together. Pat the dough into a flat disc, wrap in cling-film and chill for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat the oven to 200C, Gas mark 6.

3. Place the beetroot, butter and sugar in a shallow pan and barely cover with cold water. Cover and bring to the boil and simmer rapidly for approx. 25/30 minutes until the beetroot is tender (adding extra water if the pan becomes dry early on) Towards the end of cooking remove the lid (most of the water should be evaporated) allow the beetroot to glaze in the butter and sugar left in the saucepan. Add the apples and ginger to the pan and toss together. Spoon the mixture into a 9 inch shallow, round cake tin.

4. On a lightly floured surface roll out the pastry until it is large enough to lie as a blanket over the beetroot mixture. Carefully lift the pastry and place on top of the beetroot mixture; roughly trim the edges and tuck inside the tin.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pastry is golden and cooked. Allow to cool for a few minutes.

6. Carefully turn out onto a serving plate and dust lightly with icing sugar just before serving.
