Red and Golden Beet Crostini with Goat Cheese and Honey
  • 1 large red beet
  • 1 large golden beet
  • blood orange olive oil, just enough to glisten beets
  • splash white balsamic or champagne vinegar
  • spreadable goat cheese, enough to spread on each crostini
  • honey, just enough to drizzle over cheese
  • toasted sour dough bread
  1. Steam or roast beets in skin until tender. (I steamed for about 30 minutes, until a fork easily pierced the beet, but not too soft).
  2. Using paper towels, rub beets and skin comes right off.
  3. Cut into small cubes. Toss with blood orange olive oil or olive oil and with some orange zest. Add a splash of vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Top toasted bread with a goat cheese. Drizzle honey. Top with beets.
  5. If taking to a party, mix goat cheese and honey ahead, place in jar. Bring jar of goat cheese and honey and jars of beets along with toasted sour dough, or toasted flat bread.
