This is a classically delicious flavour combination. And the vibrant colour of the beetroot makes it perfect for a festive celebration.
- • 2 large or 3 medium beetroot (approx 500g)
- • 4 cloves garlic
- • ½ cup walnuts
- • 100g feta
- • 2 tbsp olive oil
- • 3 tbsp lemon juice
- Wrap beetroot in foil and place on baking tray. Bake for approximately 1 hour, or until beetroot is soft in the centre. Add garlic (unpeeled) for last 30 minutes of cooking time, and walnuts for last 5 minutes or so. Allow to cool.
- Rub skin off beetroot to peel (use rubber gloves!!), then add beetroot, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice to a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Scrape down sides, add feta and process again.
- Add walnuts and process until desired consistency – less if you like it a bit crunchy, more if you like it smooth.
