Hello! Sometimes, when I’m in Stockholm I enjoy to visit the Saluhall in Östermalm, the ancient food market built in 1888. There is a nice cosy atmosphere and people may sit and have a meal or look for special food and delicacies. Since I like trying recipes, once I bought some fresh beetroots and Chèvre cheese and, at home, I prepared a light tasteful cream for appetizers.
First of all, it is necessary to peel and steam the beetroots to get them softer. Then, chop and fry them very gently in extra virgin olive oil just for few minutes. In the pan, you may also add rings of red onion, scallion, very little lemon grass, salt & pepper. Right at the end, a sprinkle of parsley and some pine nuts are the perfect tasteful touch for the recipe. Perhaps you might serve a small portion of it as salad. Better if it is warm, indeed, you will find that its flavour is delicious !
Next step, make a cream of all ingredients with a mixer.
Or add crème fraîche to all ingredients and then process with the mixer.
Sourdough rye crispbread and rosemary flatbread are perfect for spreading this velvety delicacy on.
I may suggest some pine nuts on top of one version of the appetizer and small pieces of Chèvre cheese and parsley on top of the other.
I hope you will enjoy the taste and wish buon appetito!
