  • Method

    1. Preparation

      Place the beetroot into a steamer basket over a large pot of water that comes halfway up. Steam for 40-45 or until tender (depending on their size). Remove and cool to room temperature before peeling off the skins and cutting into 6ths.

    2. Dressing

      For the dressing, in a mortar and pestle crush the raspberries with a pinch of salt. Add the vinegar and stir and then slowly emulsify with the oil. Check seasoning.

    3. Serving

      Sprinkle the sliced shallot over a large plate and place the baby spinach leaves and beetroot on top. Add the figs, pepitas and crumble over the feta. Spoon over two tablespoons of the dressing and toss everything together gently. Serve on individual plates with an extra drizzle of the dressing over the top.
