Beetroot, Sour Cream & Walnut Blinis

Blinis are one of my favourite finger foods. Over the busy season, I try to make sure I’ve got some in the freezer just in case I don’t have time to make up anything from scratch! I particularly like this balsamic reduction on them – sticky and delicious!

Beetroot, Sour Cream & Walnut Blinis

Ready in 20 minutes. Makes 24 blinis.

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Marcel’s Fancy Blinis (in your supermarket’s freezer section)
  • 1 packet precooked beetroot (or you can roast or boil your own!)
  • 125g sour cream
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • Microgreens
  • 24 walnut halves

Method

Make balsamic reduction by heating vinegar and honey in small pot over high heat. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until vinegar has reduced to 1/3 cup (about 10 min). Leave to cool.

Slice beetroot into small, thin strips.

Warm blinis according to packet directions.

Top blinis with a teaspoon of sour cream, two small beetroot slices, a walnut half and microgreens. Drizzle with balsamic reduction to serve.
