Hot Beets + Cold Chèvre

June 22, 2011 · 6 comments

I know there are folks out there who hate beets. To you, I apologize for this post. Actually, no. I feel sorry for you because I LOVE beets. Hot steamed beets with a dribble of good olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar topped with a generous garnish of cold, plain chèvre is the BEST. I could eat it every day, and I’d never get tired of it. Ahhh…delicious!

This is the kind of food that would be impressive as a fancy salad starter for your next gathering of friends or family. You could even sprinkle a little minced parsley over the top for a little color, too.

Ooooh.. me too. I am into topping beets with orange juice + balsalmic vinegar mixture.. boiled for a little bit first, reduced perhaps is the appropriate cooking term for that? I am jealous of your copious fresh goat cheese!

Having a bunch of goat cheese around at all times is pretty fantastic. I’ve made a rule for myself that I have to eat it with something any time I’m at home for lunch. The orange juice concoction sounds delicious. I’ll have to try it.

I’ve never tried beets, but now I kind of want to . . .
