I am so excited to share with you this new recipe featuring Simply Artisan Reserve™ Simple Seasons™ products. While this post is sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
For about as long as I can remember, I have hated beets. The world fell in love with beet salads and I kept my stance that I do not eat beets. Then, during our visit to California, one of the courses of our prix fixe menu was a beet and goat cheese dish. I fell in love instantly and started seeking out all things beets. Once home, I created a roasted beet and blue cheese tart that gets made at least a few times a month.
I used Simply Artisan Reserve™ Simple Seasons™ for my tart. It finely crumbled cheese which is perfect for shaking on top of dishes or spooning in larger quantities too. Simple Seasons is the first real, finely crumbled soft cheese in a convenient, no waste, shakable glass jar. Simple Seasons comes in Blue Cheese and Feta varieties making it perfect to keep on hand to sprinkle on salads, pasta, soups, flatbreads or pizza, sliders, desserts and more.

To me beets are perfect in any dish and this one is no exception! I love the blue cheese in it too:)
I know exactly what you mean, I never really liked beets when I was young I think mainly as my mum didn’t so I didn’t really have them or if I did, they were over-vinegared. But as an adult I’ve grown to love them and now have them often. Sounds like a tasty tart – I made a pizza with a similar combination (plus bacon and arugula) so have a good sense. Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday.
That looks so good! I used to feel the same way about beets – but then I joined a CSA and had to figure out how to make them edible. I eventually landed on raw beets on salads as being not too bad and have since branched out. What a great combination – these would make such an awesome holiday appetizer!
