Beets in cast iron forms

For Christmas Cecilia got these nice cast iron forms from her work and we thought is was high time to try them out!

The cast iron forms filled with beets.

We chopped up a portion each of beets and placed in each of the two forms, seasoned with pepper and topped with coconut oil. We then placed them in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 °C.

After those thirty minutes we added pieces of leftover chicken and matured feta cheese. The forms then went back in the oven for another fifteen minutes.

This is the first time we tried this particular brand and type of matured feta cheese. It is matured to give it a more intense flavour with quite a lot more character than the usual brand of feta cheese that we tend to buy. Definitely not the last time we try that out!

We were really happy with the final result. A simple meal, but with the matured feta cheese and the cast iron forms it kind of made it feel like a restaurant dish anyways. I guess it all comes down to the ingredients and that this feta cheese definitely was something extra!

The cast iron pans/form was really useful as well and a nice different way of serving. The really nice thing about them is that it is possible to use them both on the stove as well as in the oven, unlike many other ceramic oven ramekins. So, you will probably see more of them in the future.

Happy paleo,

Cecilia & Magnus
