Goat Cheese Mousse

  • Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and beat until fully incorporated, creamy, and soft.

Beetroots

Notes

Add salt, pepper, olive oil, and balsamic reduction to the salad, only when you are ready to serve otherwise your greens will start to wilt. Dress as individual servings.
Beets can stain the skin and other materials. Use gloves and an apron to protect your clothes and skin.
Prepare all the ingredients in advance, so that you have a very quick and easy lunch in the fridge for a few days.
Store the ingredients individually, in airtight containers in the fridge.
Serve as an individual bowl or a large salad. Have the roasted beetroot and green salad as a side dish with grilled fish or meat, or as a light dinner.
