The few ingredients in this recipe reveal its simplicity. We tried to make Hasselback beets inspired by the most famous potatoes and the result WASO Cutting is the most “complicated » part if you can say so but with the trick of using Chinese chopsticks to block the blade of the knife we have also solved this step. That’s it!
Ingredients for 4 people
4-6 medium beets
za’atar, dill and fresh cheese to serve
Wash and dry 4-6 beets of the same size. Carve them as if to obtain many thin slices but without reaching all the way so that the potato remains whole, in the “hasselback”style. A trick? Place the beet between two Chinese chopsticks, this way they will stop the knife and the beet will not break. Place them on a baking sheet and season with plenty of oil and salt so that they also enter between cuts. Bake them at 190-200 C The last minutes activates the grill function. Serve with fresh herbs and a sprinkling of za’atar. They are delicious combined with fresh cheeses such as ricotta or burrata.
