Beets Me!!

Leaving work on Friday evening I was delighted to be given a bag of fantastic home-grown goodies from a fellow workmate which included these beauties straight out of the ground...

Well I can't say I have much experience cooking fresh beets so I had a look on the net for potential recipes. Recipes, I might add, that did not require a trip to the shop as the beautiful autumn weather we had been having turned sooooo wet over the weekend.
I came up with Roasted Beet and Feta Salad!
I peeled the beets, cut them into wedges and roasted them in the oven (1 hour at 180 degrees Celsius) with a little olive oil, sea salt and garlic. I thought they looked pretty appealing at this stage!
When cooled, I used the garlicky oil to make a dressing with some balsamic vinegar, toasted some walnuts and assembled...mixed leaved with balsamic dressing, peppered salami, roasted beets, crumbled feta, and toasted walnuts!
 I'm sure there are more sophisticated beet recipes out there (suggestions welcome should I get another food parcel!) but I have to say this was delicious!!


  1. I have beetroots and feta in ly fridge and I have nuts... And I had no idea what to eat for dinner. I guess that's settled! Thanks!

  2. I never thought about roasting beets before and the feta sounds delicious.

  3. What beautiful presentation! It looks so yummy.

  4. I thought the first photo was a holiday arrangement, because the beets look like they have faces and hairdos, but they sure are a gorgeous shade of purple when they are cooked. It sounds delicious!

  5. What a delicious recipe. Thank you.
