Brighten up your day with a “Beetroot Bake”

I can’t resist the luscious color of beetroot and as I love an experiment (not always to the delight of the kids)…Here’s my go at a beetroot and feta cheese quiche. Be warned, just the smell while your cooking the onions, beetroot and thyme is absolutely delicious!


The Ingredients

Dough
150g flour
1/2 tsp salt
50g butter
4-5 tbsp water

Quiche
1 red onion
500g/ 17.5 oz beetroot
a bunch of thyme
olive oil
5tbsp white wine vinegar

Topping
5 eggs
250ml/0.5pt(U.S.) double creme
salt and pepper
200g/ 7oz feat cheese

Make the dough and leave to chill for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven at 175°C/347°F. Slice the onions and the beetroot. Chop up the thyme. Roll out the dough and place in a greased or paper lined quiche tray and bake for 10minutes. While the base is baking, fry in the onions, Beetroot and thyme. Leave the base and the cooked veggies to cool down, then place the veggies on to the base, pour the topping over them and crumble the feta cheese over the top. Bake for 40 minutes and serve with some baby spinach, lettuce or just enjoy it on it’s own.

Brighten up your day with A Beetroot Bake…or simply enjoy a colourful lunch!

    What a beautiful savory dish. And a great way to get the kids to eat their vegetables. I too, love smell of onions and thyme.

  2. Wonder if this might work as a frittata/crustless? Combination of beets with goat feta – mmm. Always a nice combo for me! I like your site.

  3. Wow I love this! I am trying to get my husband to jump on the beet bandwagon, so far he claims golden beets are okay but not the red ones. I think they all taste the same, but whatever as long as he is eating what I make 🙂

  4. I am inspired. I love beetroots in cutlets. In Calcutta, India, where I was raised, my community (called Bengalis) indulge in raisin-and-nut spicy cutlets using beetroots. I have memories of my mother’s cutlets. I shall have to reinvent beetroot in the kitchen looking at your dish.

  5. I can’t get over how scrumptious this looks!😍
    Seems like a great combination of flavours and I’m definitely going to be giving it a try. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
