Total time: 1 hour 10 mins
Ingredients
  • 4 large beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup garlic-infused olive oil (or 1 clove of minced garlic + olive oil)

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
