Ingredients (Serves 4)
- Preheat the oven to 190°C. Grease a roasting or casserole dish with olive oil. Spread the beetroot wedges on it and season with salt.
- Squash the garlic cloves with their skins intact with the flat side of a kitchen knife and scatter them over.
- Quarter the bay leaves and spread over the beets with the thyme sprigs. Drizzle with a little olive oil, and mix everything together. Place in the oven for 45 to 60 minutes, turning two or three times.
- Season with balsamic vinegar halfway through the cooking time. Test the beetroot with a fork - the beets should be slightly caramelised and still firm. Take out of the oven, remove herbs and garlic.
- Spread the basil leaves and the cream cheese in generous pieces over the beets, drizzle with a little olive oil, pepper and serve.
