INGREDIENTS

  • 100g RR. Spink & Sons Cold Smoked Trout

  • 125g goat’s cheese log
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • olive oil

METHOD

Pre-heat the oven to 180c fan.

In a large bowl, add the raw beetroot, a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, a sprig or 2 of thyme, salt & pepper and the garlic. Toss to coat the beetroot.

Spread the beets on an ovenproof dish or tray. Roast the beets in the oven for 40 – 60 minutes (depending on their size) until they are tender.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Once cooled, peel the beets.

In a food processor, add the peeled beetroots, the smoked trout, the goats cheese and pulse to blend well. Season with extra salt & pepper according to taste.

This versatile dip can be served with crackers, breads, or as a delicious canapé.
