This bright red, beet coulis goes great on cheesecake, steak or on a salad. It's very versatile. And, way too much fun.
8 small beets (red/yellow or whatever you like)
5 Tbs Hazelnut oil (or walnut or just a good olive oil)
1 lemon - juiced
1 tsp molasses or brown sugar
1 tsp flour
salt to taste
Puree the above ingredients in your blender or food processor till smooth.
That's it... done. Refrigerate to keep. Put in squeeze bottle for the most fun with the paint or just use the back of a knife to paint with. Play around with it on a blank plate before you decide on your final design.
Seriously, I'm going to try making a beet coulis and blackstrap molasses cheesecake. I swear it's going to knock my socks off.
