Servings 4


  • 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
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice about 1/4 of a lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • Cilantro


  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • First up, clean your beets.
  • Then drizzle them in 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar and 2 tablespoons olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil.
  • Roast them at 375 degrees F for about 90 minutes until they are fork tender and the peel rubs off easily.
  • Then cool your beets. While they are cooling, you can make your goat cheese sauce!
  • 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!
  • Once your beets are cool, rub off the rest of the peel with a damp paper towel.
  • Then cut them into bite sides pieces. You could do all cubes if you want to get all fancy.
  • In a large saute pan, heat canola or vegetable oil over medium high heat. (You could use a deep fryer too!)
  • Dredge the beets in cornstarch and fry until the outside is crunchy.
  • Transfer to a paper towel or rack to absorb extra oil and immediately sprinkle with salt.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro and serve right away with goat cheese sauce!
