This is my interpretation of one of my favourite classic combos, roasted beetroot and goats’ cheese. I love how the caramelisation from the balsamic on the beetroot adds to the vibrant flavour of the juicy flesh and when combined with the goats’ cheese creates a mouthwateringly tangy-creamy combo. The ash on the goats’ cheese compliments the beetroot very well adding to the earthy notes of the beets.
This is a great dish to serve as a starter when entertaining or simply as a weekend treat. It’s low fuss, packed full of flavour, full of nutrients and light on the wallet while it’s at it.
The watercress adds a welcome peppery note and the purple basil complements the beetroot perfectly on the plate but more importantly on the palate. Served with an ice cold, crisp and fruity Grüner Veltliner you’ll be on to an absolute winner. Enjoy! Continue reading “Balsamic roasted beetroot with ash rolled goats’ cheese”
