Beetroot snack!

Today I made a little Gordon Ramsay recipe... Balsamic caramelized beetroot with sesame seeds and blue cheese. Begin with a dry pan, add some olive oil and turn up the heat. When the oil is hot, add the sliced pre-cooked beetroots. After 5 min in the pan, add some balsamic vinegar and let it caramelize. The result has to be dark (almost black) beetroot slices. Let it rest on a plate while you prepare the sesame seeds.
Then get a new dry pan for the sesame seeds. Do not add any oil, just the seeds. Turn up the heat and keep the seeds moving. You do not want to hear popcorn popping! When they are golden brown, put them in a little bowl for resting. After some minutes they will be crunchy and fantastic to eat.
Get the blue cheese, and as you can see on the picture, just put some bits and pieces on top of the plate.
Put it on the table, and eat it with a great salad and chicken! It´s different from all the regular potatoes and it´s really healthy!! If you are skeptical, I understand, but it really is great!

  1. I love beets! I usually make a sortlike side salad with feta cheese instead of blue cheese. I'm certainly going to try this variation soon! Pretty picture from such messy food :)
