Beetroot and Goats Cheese Salad

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 2 large or 3 small beetroot
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

For the dressing

  • 50g Kalamata olives, pitted
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil.

For the salad

  • 200g mixed salad leaves
  • 100g soft Goat's cheese
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 2 tbsp chives, chopped
  • Salt and pepper.

Method

4D Hot Air at 180°C.
  1. Wash and scrub the beetroot. Wrap them individually in foil twisting the top to get a good seal. Place on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the beetroot is tender.
  2. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Take out of the foil and remove the skin. Use gloves for this to avoid stained hands. The best way to peel them is to rub with kitchen paper and the skins will just slip off. Cut each beetroot into quarters.
  3. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle over the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven and roast for 20 minutes, turning once during cooking.
  4. To make the dressing: Place all the dressing ingredients into a food processor. Blend until mixed but not too smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  5. Arrange the salad leaves on a serving platter. Place the roast beetroot on the leaves. Scatter over the Goat's cheese, spring onions and chives. Drizzle over the dressing and serve at once.

Note: The beetroot can be cooked in less than half the time using Microwave Combination. Peel and cut the raw beetroot into chunks. Sprinkle over the balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Choose 180ºC and 360W. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until soft.

Living Spaces at Kube

Historically, architects tended to favour separate living and kitchen spaces within the family home and the kitchen was more often than not, a separate room away from the living room and families moved from one room to another during the day. Nowadays, open plan living spaces are the most popular choice for many families in need of more space in their home. The modern home has an open plan kitchen and living space - ideal for keeping the family together. This innovative living space now makes co-ordination of materials and finishes between the two spaces more of a consideration. At Kube, we have the answer. We have beautiful materials from leading brands such as Calligaris and Koinor to complement and complete your living space. Wood is a popular choice for your living space being durable, tangible and flexible. Wood tables from Calligaris at Kube are FSC certified, meaning the raw material is from well managed forests in strict compliance with social and environmental standards. Team your table with a brightly coloured fabric chair from Calligaris which has the added advantage of being easy to clean. You have a durable and beautiful dining set, complementing your kitchen using beautiful woods, glass and fabrics. In your open plan living space, you may also have room for a sofa or comfortable chair. Leather is a popular choice in a busy family with spillages easily wiped and cleaned. However, as fabric is now made pre-treated for easy cleaning, it is now also a viable option in a busy living space - and considered cosy by many. There are lots of leather and fabric colours and finishes available at Kube from both Koinor and Calligaris. And to complete your open plan living space, choose a bright and contrasting easy chair from Koinor at Kube to spend those scarce and precious free hours in the ultimate in luxury and comfort.

New Spring Designer Kitchen Ranges in-store

At Kube, we are very excited to launch our brand-new designer kitchen ranges this Spring in all our five stores in Dublin and Cork. We have gorgeous new designs for you to browse with all the up-to-date designer features installed. Matte kitchen door finishes are still the designer choice this year. This white matte handle-less kitchen has just arrived in our Sandyford store. It is complemented with wood finishes on the shelving and breakfast bar and some beautiful feature glass shelving. Matte finishes are available in other colours, such as the beautiful Lava colour used in our Balbriggan store kitchen display.

The star of the Spring launch at Kube must be the real concrete Portland door range - the true designer kitchen for 2017. Real concrete doors are not widely available in Ireland and Kube are thrilled to bring them to the Irish consumer at a realistic price.

View our new Spring range designer kitchens at any of our five stores. Portland concrete is available immediately at Sandyford, Rathgar and Balbriggan and coming very soon to our Long Mile Road and Cork stores.
