Beet hummus and minted cheese on buckwheat blinis

Marlette beet blinis Savors of europe

This delicious and unusual hummus shows a spectacular color and earthy but slightly sweet flavor from cooked beets. It pairs particularly well with minted cream cheese on Marlette’s organic blinis. Within the time it takes to open a box of ready made blinis and warm them, you’ll have your fresh blinis ready. Plus all the ingredients are from organic farming with 40% of buckwheat flour and a pinch of marine salt from famous French island Ile de Re.

Preparation time: 30 minutes plus one hour set aside

8 medium blinis, ideally suited for cocktails canapés or appetizer, with a salad


Pre-cooked beets 1lb, or roast your own fresh beets

Cream cheese 8 oz

Fresh mint 1 bunch

For the hummus:

  • Sesame seeds paste (tahini) 2.3 oz
  • Garlic 1 clove
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp
  • Lemon juice 3 tbsp
  • Cumin 2 tbsp
  • A pinch of salt

And for the blinis batter

Cut the beet into big cubes.

Add all the hummus ingredients and mix in a blender. Cover and set aside in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Chop the fresh mint and combine it with the cream cheese.

Follow the instructions in the baking mix bag to prepare the blinis: 

- Pour the content of the Marlette bag into a bowl

- Warm one cup of  milk and 3 tbsp of butter together then pour slowly in the bowl and mix thoroughly

- Beat two eggs with a fork in another bowl then add them to the mixture gently

- Set aside for 30 minutes

- Heat a large frying pan with a little vegetable oil. We want medium blinis for this recipe so place enough dough (3 to 4 tbsp) to prepare 8 of them. Cook for a few minutes per side.

Place a layer of minted cream cheese on your blinis then 1 to 2 tsp of beet hummus. As a final touch add a mint leaf on top, et voilà !
