Beetroot and Onion Supper Special (Peter Cushing)


2 to 4


Peter Cushing’s dish is simplicity itself – and not too beetrooty either. It features alongside Vincent's Steamed Apple Pudding in the Scream and Scream Again chapter in Supper with the Stars

Beetroot and Onion Supper Special (Peter Cushing)



How to make

Dice the beetroot and finely slice the celery.

In a large pan sauté the onion until just turning brown. Add the beetroot and celery. Turn down the heat and cook for 2 minutes.

Chop the potatoes into chunks and add to the pan. Season with pepper. Cover and cook on a very low heat until the potato is tender, stirring every few minutes to prevent sticking.


4-6 medium beetroots, cooked
2 sticks celery, scrubbed
2 large onions, roughly chopped or 8-10 pickling onions, whole
2 large potatoes, pre-boiled for 10 minutes
Sunflower oil
Freshly ground black pepper
