    4 People


  • 2 medium beetroots, peeled
  • 2 large brown onions, peeled and sliced
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh thyme leaves and a few stems to garnish
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g soft goat cheese or Persian feta, crumbled
  • 1 30x 30cm sheet of good quality defrosted puff pastry or 250g homemade pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

You'll Need

  • Multix Bake
  • Multix Alfoil


  1. Preheat oven to 190°C.
  2. Wrap the peeled beetroot tightly in Alfoil and bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, unwrap and allow to cool enough to be handled, then slice thinly.
  3. In a non-reactive frying pan on a medium heat, sauté the onions with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, stirring occasionally for about 8-10 minutes until golden brown and very soft. Add the brown sugar, 1 tablespoon thyme leaves and balsamic vinegar, stirring all the time until the mixture is dark brown, rich and sticky. Remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly and stir in 2/3 of the crumbled goats cheese.
  4. Line a medium baking tray with Multix Bake. Place the pastry in the middle of the tray and roll the edges, about 1cm all the way round the sheet (to make a low lip). Brush generously with the beaten egg. Spread the caramelised onion and goats cheese mixture over the base and top with overlapped slices of beetroot. Finish with a drizzle of the olive oil, scatter the remaining crumbled goat cheese and thyme leaves.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown, beetroot soft and cheese topping lightly toasted. Serve warm, garnished with a few thyme stems and a green leaf salad. Serves 4 as an entrée or 2 as a light lunch.
