Ingredients

  • 500 g 4 small beets
  • 1 tbsp balsamic glaze
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt to taste
  • 50g/2 tbsp goat cheese crumbled
  • 2-3 leaves of fresh mint chopped

Instructions

  • Trim the beetroot leaves and wash them but do not peel as beetroot tends to bleed when boiled and keeping the skins on reduces bleeding.
  • Put them in a pot and cover with water, boil them for 30 minutes for small beetroot.
  • Test the doneness by piercing with a knife, the same way you would do with potatoes.
  • Peel them as warm as your hands can take it and quarter.
  • Toss with olive oil, balsamic glaze and sprinkle with sea salt while still warm.
  • Scatter crumbled goat’s cheese and mint before serving.
  • Serve warm or cold.
