Beets & Spiced Goat Cheese

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Delicious side for any meal, the perfect snack, or fancy (and healthy) party fare.

Ingredients

  • 4-5 medium sized beets, cleaned
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts

Directions

  1. Wrap your cleaned beets in tinfoil and roast in 400 degree oven for 45 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl mix together goat cheese, cinnamon, black pepper, and honey.
  3. Once beets have cooled, peel away skin and slice into 1/4 inch slices (I prefer to use my mandolin slicer for this).
  4. Lay beets out on a platter and either crumble goat cheese mixture over them as well as crushed walnuts. OR using plastic wrap, spinkle a generous layer of walnuts down on the wrap, place cheese mixture in the middle, bring together all the sides and twist at the top, forming a tight ball. Let cheese ball chill for at least 1 hour before unwrapping and serving as a spread for the beet slices. ENJOY!
