Preheat the oven to 150 degrees celsius. Cut the cauliflower into thick slices, and coat with oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Bake for 1 hour, or until the cauliflower is caramelised and tender like butter.

Peel the beet and cut it into thin slices with a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife. Place the slices in a glass. Bring the vinegar, sugar and water to a boil and pour it on top of the beet slices. Store the glass in the fridge. You can use the pickled beets after 10 minutes or 10 days.

Butter the crispbreads and place salad, cauliflower and beets on top. Garnish with herbs.
