Recipe type/ Τύπος Πιάτου: Appetizer
Cuisine/ Κουζίνα: Greek
Serves: 4
Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • 6 bulbs of beets
For the Feta Mousse
  • 70 gr. / 2.5 oz. of feta cheese
  • 200 ml / 7 fl oz. heavy cream
  • 1 to 2 tbsp chopped scallion depending how intense you want it
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 6 leaves of fresh basil
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper (be careful with the salt, start with just a pinch and if you see that it needs more, add pinch by pinch because feta is salty by its own)
For the Honey Sauce
  • 90 gr. / 3 oz. honey
  • 40 gr. / 1.5 oz. water
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. You can make this appetizer even one day before and just assemble everything before serving.
For the Feta Cheese
  1. In your food processor add all the mousse ingredients and blend until a smooth batter is formed.
  2. You can either pour it in small molds or you can put it in a bowl and put it in the fridge.
For the Beetroots
  1. Take a parchment paper, put them in and seal it.
  2. Bake them in a preheated oven at 180°C / 350°F until when piercing with a fork is really easy.
  3. Remove, peel them and set aside.
For the Honey Sauce
  1. In a small pot add the honey and water and simmer until they are incorporated.
  2. Make sure that the temperature is no more than 40°C / 104°F otherwise the honey loses all its nutritional elements and becomes just a common sweetener.
Assembly
  1. Cut the beets in slices, salt and pepper them.
  2. Take the cheese out of the fridge and if you have it in molds, unmold it, or if you have it in a bigger bowl take a spoon and form small balls.
  3. Serve everything in a platter and pour the honey sauce on top of the cheese and the beets.
