September sees the ruby red bulbs of beetroot available in abundance. It’s been said that beetroot is the marmite of the vegetable world. Some love its earthy flavour and health-giving properties and others chastise its ability to turn almost everything pink. Here at Godminster we think it is a beautiful autumnal addition to any plate and we have a couple of suggestions that pair our cheese with blushing beetroot. Creamy Pasta Bake with Godminster Cheddar, Smoked Ham and Beetroot – a gentle introduction to the wonderful world of beetroot, here the indulgent pasta bake enjoys a little health kick thanks to cubes of beetroot being stirred through before being baked until golden and bubbling.
Godminster, Beetroot and Bacon Brunch Bread – This hearty loaf pairs creamy Godminster with earthy beetroot and salty bacon. Serve warm topped with melting butter or on the side of a wholesome homemade soup.
You can now find Godminster Classic Cheddar in Waitrose cheese aisles, its perfect for adding a kick of flavour to any weeknight supper.
