A delicious way to eat beets and a versatile goat cheese sauce to boot!
  • 5 medium beets
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (or more to get desired thickness)
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice (about ¼ of a lemon)
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • Cilantro
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. First up, clean your beets.
  3. Then drizzle them in 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar and 2 tablespoons olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil.
  4. Roast them at 375 degrees F for about 90 minutes until they are fork tender and the peel rubs off easily.
  5. Then cool your beets. While they are cooling, you can make your goat cheese sauce!
  6. In a food processor, combine goat cheese, and olive oil until you have the desired consistency. Then add in salt, pepper, cayenne and lemon juice and puree again!
  7. Once your beets are cool, rub off the rest of the peel with a damp paper towel.
  8. Then cut them into bite sides pieces. You could do all cubes if you want to get all fancy.
  9. In a large saute pan, heat canola or vegetable oil over medium high heat. (You could use a deep fryer too!)
  10. Dredge the beets in cornstarch and fry until the outside is crunchy.
  11. Transfer to a paper towel or rack to absorb extra oil and immediately sprinkle with salt.
  12. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve right away with goat cheese sauce!
