Uncommonly Delicious Beet Puffs by Kian of RedCook.
Ever since I was a child, I’ve loved anything made with daikon or Chinese white radish. My favourite application has always been flaky, puffy pastries filled with shaved daikon and Chinese ham. I always burn my lips and tongue on the piping hot filling from sinking my teeth into it too eagerly… but it never stops from continuing to bite more. ow!
Kian cleverly substituted daikon with “sweeter, earthier” red beets and enveloped it in jawdroppingly gorgeous lard puff pastry, topped with a crunchy sesame crust.
Congratulations, Kian! Please feel free to proudly display the winner badge on your page!
I’ll admit… all the entries were so amazing I couldn’t pick just one. My close runner up is Roasted Beet and Ginger Risotto with Fontina by Mary of BlissTree.com.
Mary’s gorgeous, vibrant risotto really stood out. The glistening emerald deep-fried beet leaves adds a nice touch of colour against the ruby-stained rice.
I am especially smitten by this heart made of beets. I can’t wait to try this.
