Beet and Goat Cheese Spread
1 lb. Red Dog Farm beets
1/4 cup goat cheese
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the beets on a sheet of foil. Drizzle oil over top, and fold up into a packet. Roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the packet is soft when you squeeze it.
Once the packet is cool enough to handle, slip the beet skins off and discard. Place the beets in the bowl of a food processor. Add the goat cheese Process until you get a uniformly bright magenta spread (alternatively, mash with a potato masher or fork). Add 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper to start and a pinch of salt. Pulse a few times to incorporate the seasonings. Taste and add more salt and pepper if you like.
