6 fresh red beets
4 cloves of garlic
3 bay leaves
salt and pepper, to taste
extra virgin olive oil, to taste
70 grams of shelled walnuts, lightly toasted
30 grams of pumpkin seeds, lightly toasted
170 grams of thick Greek yogurt
the juice of half a lemon
chives or green parts of a fresh onion
Preheat oven to 200 degrees static. Wash the beets and Peel, then cut them in half and then into quarters (and then again into quarters if they were too large). Put the beet in a baking sheet with poached garlic and bay leaf, then season with salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about an hour or until the beet is tender, then put it in a bowl and season it with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, a little salt and half of the chives or the green parts of the onion chopped.
Emulsify the yogurt until it is soft, and add half of the chopped walnuts and pumpkin seeds, then drizzle with yogurt cream beets, without mixing too much to maintain the 'pinkish-white' effect of the dressing.
Decorate with poached garlic (yummy food to eat), the remaining kernels of nuts and roasted pumpkin seeds and a little chopped spring onion. Bon appétit!
