Ingredients

  • 4 beets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Goat Cheese Spread

  • 4 ounces soft goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon basil fresh
  • 1 teaspoon thyme fresh

Instructions

  • Begin by scrubbing the exterior of the beet to remove any dirt from the skin. Remove tops from the beets.
  • Make 4, 6” x 6” squares of aluminum foil. Place a beet in the center of each square.
  • Drizzle beets with olive oil and just a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Wrap the foil around the beet until it is completely enclosed.
  • Place beets in your slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours.
  • For the Goat Cheese Sauce, combine the cheese olive oil, basil, and thyme in a blender. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • When removing the packages from the slow cooker, carefully open the aluminum foil and allow any steam to escape (they will be very hot!!)
  • Once the beets are cool, remove the skins with a small knife – the skins should just fall off. Serve with goat cheese sauce and fresh basil. Enjoy!
