When it comes to preparing food and presentation we tend to take the easy way out! But with these wafers you open doors that are not so common, and unleash a delicious creativity that is worthy of notice. These wafers are a perfect base for canapés. Instead of the old fashioned blinis, bread slices… go for beetroot wafers. They add a new layer to the flavour and they look good too. Make them in mini squares and top them with Ceviche, Smoked Salmon, Cream and Caviar, Confit de canard…etc. even the simple tomato bruschetta will be transformed over a wafer! You can also top these mini wafer bases with rolled mini cheese/labneh balls (any flavour).
Not only for canapés, as you can use these wafers instead of breads, crisps or sticks to serve with dips, and are perfect for your cheeseboards. Beetroot wafers go very well with a Hummus dip, eggplant caviar, 7 layer Mexican dip…etc. You do not even have to make them in mini squares or rounds, you can simply make a large sheet and break it into pieces for dipping. Finally you can layer them like a mille feuille, and cream labneh, cheese or any other dips and toppings… There really is no limit to their use, so this is one recipe worth having and perfecting as you will be using it lots once you get the hang of it.
Like with anything great, this requires a bit of extra work, and some practice to perfect, but nothing overly complicated or difficult. Just a matter of getting the hang of it.
Since you are using the beets, you might as well use their leaves to make chips! Check the video below for how to make Kale and Beetroot greens chips.
