Our Beetroot and Goat's Cheese bake is a classic combination of beetroot, Goat's cheese (vegetarian), free range eggs, red lentils, red onions and thyme.
The sweetness of the beetroot compliments the tartness of the cheese beautifully and everyone knows how good lentils are for us, this bake is the perfect way to eat more of them (without really noticing!).

Not just a beautiful colour, they are a power house vegetable.
As their colour suggests beetroots are a blood tonic and are good for anemia, the heart and circulation. They purify the blood, alleviate constipation and aid the liver.
Beetroot fibre has been shown to increase the level of antioxidant enzymes in the body, as well as increase the number of white blood cells, which are responsible for detecting and eliminating abnormal cells.
Beetroots are also one of the richest sources of glutamine, an amino acid, essential to the health and maintenance of the intestinal tract.
When we use eggs in our cooking we always use locally sourced free range eggs.
Eggs are a rich source of protein and omega-3
fatty acids and a range of vitamins and minerals.
Not just for the sandal wearers amongst us, we should all be eating more of these little fellows on a regular basis.
