Marinated Beetroot & Goats Cheese

Marinated Beetroot with Grilled Goat’s Cheese – Serves 4

6 tbsp rapeseed oil, plus a little extra for greasing

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp thyme leaves

4 raw beetroot, very thinly sliced on a mandolin or with a food processor slicing attachment

2 x 100g goat’s cheese rounds with rind, halved horizontally

4 handfuls of rocket

Prepare & Cook-

Mix the oil, vinegar, sugar and thyme in a shallow dish and season well. Add the sliced beetroot and marinate for a least 1 hour or overnight, if you like.

Heat grill to high.

Season the goat’s cheese slices, then place on an oiled baking tray and grill for 2-3 mins until golden and melting.

Lift out the beetroot, reserving the marinade, and divide between 4 plates. Top the rocket, a round of goat’s cheese and a little more rocket. Drizzle with the marinade and serve.
