This is one of those dishes where I really want to write about it, because it was delicious, but at the same time it contains some really polarising ingredients and I know a lot of people are going to see this and say "Yuk".
I do understand the beetroot hate. It isn't my favourite thing, although I have an increasing appreciation for it as a fresh vegetable OR as a condiment (but not steeped in vinegar and served as a vegetable). I don't understand the goats cheese haters but I do recognise that those who don't like it REALLY don't like it, and can smell it from the other side of the room.
So, yes, this is a polarising meal. Beetroot & shallots glazed with butter, honey and balsamic (based on the sweet & sour beetroot in Diana Henry's Plenty), topped with a disc of goats cheese and grilled until browned, bubbly and delicious. Paul doesn't like sweet & sour and he doesn't like beetroot, so this was definitely a solo treat.
