Yes, some more beetroot today. This time a creamy, silky beetroot & goats cheese spread. Perfect as appetizer or on your sandwich. It has a sweet but present (cheesy) taste with a fresh touch of lemon.
This beetroot spread is a great dish for a brunch, picnic, bbq or family lunch. It is a bit of a surprise, next to the more traditional egg salad, cheese, tuna mayonnaise… but can really compete. Not only for the taste, but look at that colour! You would almost instantly fall in love. At least, I would!
It is also very good to try with the kids. They will be attracted to the colour. The sweet taste is something most of them will like. And that is something that cannot always be said for food with a green colour, if you know what I mean 🙂
