  • 100g white wine vinegar
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 2 medium beetroot, topped, tailed and peeled
  • 150g soft goat’s cheese
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • a small bunch flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • a handful walnuts, toasted and chopped


  • STEP 1

    Put the vinegar, sugar, 100ml of water and a little seasoning into a small pan and heat until the sugar dissolves.

  • STEP 2

    Use a mandoline or sharp knife to cut very thin slices of beetroot, then put into a bowl and pour over the hot pickling liquid. Cool to room temperature, then chill for 2 hours.

  • STEP 3

    Put the goat’s cheese into a bowl and use a wooden spoon to beat until smooth. Stir in the lemon zest and juice, parsley, salt and plenty of pepper.

  • STEP 4

    Drain the beetroot slices really well and pat dry with kitchen paper. Spoon or pipe a little of the filling onto one half of each beetroot slice, add a little walnut, then fold over gently. Repeat with the remaining slices and filling.
