This delicious dip works beautifully as a canapé, but is equally delicious when spread on crackers or melba toast.
Serves 4 as a side, 2 as a main
- 100g RR. Spink & Sons Cold Smoked Trout
- 450g beetroot, tops trimmed
- 125g goat’s cheese log
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- olive oil
- salt & pepper to season
- fresh thyme
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.
