Serves: 4

  • 4 medium organic golden and/or red beets
  • 3-4 ounces herb goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup dried apricots, chopped
  • 1/3 cup roasted pistachio pieces
  • 3 tablespoons good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Scrub beets well, dry, and coat with a little olive oil. Place beets in an ovenproof pan, cover with foil, and roast at 350 for 40-45 minutes, or until knife tender.
  3. When beets are cool enough to handle, remove the skin, and cut into slices. Place beets on a serving platter, sprinkle with goat cheese, chopped apricots, and pistachios.
  4. In a small bowl, combine olive oil and balsamic vinegar and mix well. Drizzle over beets. Serve immediately.
