What you’ll need….
(Serves 4-6 people)
- 3 medium-large beetroot
- 1 miniature pumpkin or about 3 or 4 slices of a medium one
- 4 tbsp freshly snipped chives
- 4 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
- 1 tbsp fresh or dried rosemary
- 1 tbsp fresh or dried oregano
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 200g goat’s cheese
- A pinch of good quality sea salt and black pepper
Line a 10 x 20cm loaf tin with baking paper, leaving enough paper to fold and cover the terrine later.
Scrub the beetroot and place them in a pot. Cover with water and lid, and cook for about 30 minutes until tender. Set aside to cool, then peel.
Peel and cut the pumpkin in small chunks, about 0.5-1 cm thick. Put them in a pot with the grated nutmeg and half of the rosemary, and mix well. Add some water, cover with a lid and cook for about 10-15 minutes, until tender. Set aside to cool.
While your vegetables are cooking, mix the goat’s cheese with all the herbs and garlic in a bowl and season to taste.
Slice the cooked beetroot in various sizes, some about 0.5cm, some thinner.
Put a layer of beetroot on the bottom of the tin, followed by a thin layer of the goat’s cheese and herbs mix.
Then, put a layer of pumpkin followed by another thin layer of the goat’s cheese and herbs mix. Repeat until you reach the top.
Cover the terrine with the baking paper, place a weight on top and refrigerate overnight or for 8 hours to set.
When ready to serve, cover the loaf tin with a plate and turn it upside down to remove the terrine. Slice and enjoy!
