Enough beetroot mix for 50-60 crackers
Bold (and in season) beetroot paired with mellow, sweet ricotta and maple syrup make a delicious combination in both visual and flavour. Salty & toasty black sesame crackers make a perfect podium for the shocking pink topping.
If you don’t want to make as many as 60 canapés, the beetroot mix will keep in the fridge for a few days and would be lovely as a dip for crudites, breadsticks or tortilla chips (blue tortilla chips would look amazing alongside the beetroot mix).
300g cooked beetroot, juices drained and patted dry
2 tsp maple syrup (or honey)
50g pistachio kernels, blitzed or finely chopped
60 black sesame crackers (or use an assortment)
- In a food processor, blitz the beetroot and ricotta until smooth.
- Add the maple syrup and season, blitzing again for a few seconds. If you’re not assembling immediately then cover and place in the fridge until required.
- Use a teaspoon to put the beetroot mix atop crackers, and finish with a bit of pistachio dust.
