This is a dish that many of my friends have liked very much! Super easy and super quick!
What you need:
– puff pastry (5 sheets)
– 2 large beetroots
– cream cheese
– goats cheese
– salt & pepper
Take out the puff pastry 30 minutes prior to cooking and let thaw. Peel and boil the beetroots, then slice thinly and place on a parchement paper. Drizzle over some balsamico and roast in the oven for about 10 minutes until not soggy anymore.
Roll out the puff pastry slightly, then score the puff pastry 1cm around the corners. Spread out the cream cheese (not on the edges) and then layer with beetroot and thinky sliced goats cheese or zucchini ( sliced with vegetable peeler). Season with salt and pepper, brush pastry edges with egg and let bake for 15-20 minutes in a 200 degree oven until the pastry is cooked through.
Serve with walnuts and rucola!
Yesterday I hosted a Christmas party for my friends with muled wine, ginger breads and Secret Santa!
Some of my guest’s requested some recipes, so quick recipe for goatscheese and beetroot tarteletts!
Start with peeling the beetroots and boil them (20-30min) until soft. Slice the beetroots and place on a oven tray. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle over some balsamico and let dry out for about 10 minutes in 200 degree oven.
Melt your puff pastry, cut halfway through the pastry a score 1cm around the pastry. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese (philadelphia) on the pastry (leave 1cm of edges without) and then place the beetroots ontop and then thin slices of goats cheese. Brush the pastry edges with egg and bake in a 200 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes until golden! When cooled down a bit, drizzle a little more of Balsamico over the tartelet and some crushed walnuts.
Yesterday, me and my lovely dinner company ate a nice dinner at Kolm Sibulat ( Telliskivi 2). It was my first visit , and I was positively surprised even though everybody has been complimenting the place. The place itself is cosy, staff is friendly and the food was tasty. Definetly in my top 3!
Some appertizers, goatscheese salad with beetroot and carpaccio, yum!
We took all different main courses, I ate duck with noodles and plum sauce (delish)!
And the desserts……oh my the passion fruit cheese cake, it was right to my taste! And the Bailey’s tiramisu was reaaally good!
So, next time when you are in Tallinn, book a table to Kolm Sibulat! x
Salad base: spinach, yellow-brown and red cherry tomatoes, cucumber
Oven roasted sweet potato, goatscheese, toasted pinenuts and balsamico.
What you need(for two):
– 2 discs of goatscheese
– 1 red paprica
– 1/2 yellow paprica
– salad leaves
– 1/2 large avocado
– 1 tomato
– pine nuts
– drizzle of honey
Start with heating up a oven to 220 degrees, put halved papricas on a baking tray and rub with olive oil and skin faced up. Roast until full with dark spots and skin bubbly (about 20-30 min). Plate up some salad, slice tomato and avocado, drizzle with evoo. Roast about 3 tbsp of pine nuts on a dry pan until golden. When the peppers have cooled down a bit, simply peel them and slice. Drizzle goatscheese with honey and ground pepper, then put in a 250 degree oven for 5 min. I usually put the goatscheese on small coffee plate so it doesn’t start to spread all over the place, haha a homecooks tip! Then just add the goatscheese to salad, drizzle with balsamico and add pine nuts. Voilà!
Slice sweet potato into thin slices, rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake in a 220 degree oven.
