So, I have beets for you today, which I’m sure is disappointing for many of you, but please, hear me out.
These beets are peeled and sliced thinly. Then, roasted in a hot oven. They’re served with a drizzle of honey and sprinkling of goat cheese. The combination is addictive. Really. I swear.
Here’s some proof:
These made Ellie give up her hatred of beets (well, at least the golden variety – red ones are still not tolerated).
Not enough? Well, if it helps, I was first served this dish about two years ago, and every time I pass beets I want to make this.
Give it a try and thank me later.
Beets with Goat Cheese & Honey
Serves 2 1/2
3 small beets
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Drizzle of honey
2 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Peel the beets and slice them in 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick rounds. Toss in extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.
Once the oven is ready, let roast for 15 minutes. Flip the beets. Roast another 15 minutes or until tender.
Remove to a platter. Drizzle with honey. Crumble goat cheese on top of the beets. Serve immediately and enjoy.
