Beetroot Carpaccio with Apricot and Brie

Labels: { , , } | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

This is clearly not something everyone will enjoy, but beetroot is so healthy and should be part of your diet. Thinly sliced kitchen-ready beets lay the foundation for this simple and tasty recipe. It is low in calories, fat and features one of my favorite root vegetables in a beautiful way. Soft-ripened Brie can be replaced with Feta or goat cheese.

  • 2 Beetroot, trimmed and thinly sliced on a mandoline
  • 1/3 Lemon, juiced
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • White Balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp Walnut oil
  • 2 Apricots, stoned and diced
  • 50 g Brie
  • Rucola
  1. Using a mandoline, slice the beetroot into a bowl. Add the lemon juice, a little salt and pepper, a large tablespoon of walnut oil and the balsamic vinegar, and mix.
  2. Cut the apricots in half, remove the pits and dice. Cut the Brie into cubes.
  3. Arrange the thinly sliced beetroot onto two serving plates. Scatter the diced apricot, Brie cubes and rucola over. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

I love beets and goat cheese together but never tried adding apricot like sweet fruit. Definitely new to me. But beets are so sweet, it would not surprise me a bit if this passes for dessert!

Bel | Ooh Look... 1/7/13 05:09

Wow, Angie, the plate of beetroot, apricot and cheese looks absolutely beautiful.

What a pretty dish Angie! I can eat a plateful of this. Yum!

Jeannie Tay 1/7/13 07:54

Looks like a very delicious way to eat beetroot, very nicely plated I love those in stacks in the bowls.

Foodycat 1/7/13 07:56

I can just imagine how well the earthy beetroot would work with the salty cheese and sweet fruit! And it is so pretty!

Rosa's Yummy Yums 1/7/13 07:56

Scrumptious! That is a great idea and combination.



Guru Uru 1/7/13 08:42

I am not brie's biggest fan, but this looks way too delicious :D

Daphne Bryson 1/7/13 17:12

Good Afternoon Angie, Thank you so much for visiting Ivy, Phyllis and Me! also for leaving your lovely comment and becoming a follower.
I adore fresh beetroot and I am always looking for a new way to eat it. I love this recipe and I will certainly be trying this.
I feel beetroot is underused and it is such a shame, because it has a nice flavour. I roast beetroot in the oven, slice and sprinkle with sea salt, just lovely.
I have enjoyed my visit Angie and I am following you on g+ and GFC.
I look forward to reading more of your recipes.
Best Wishes to you,

Asmita 1/7/13 17:46

I could go through that plate in a minute. Looks stunning!
