    Prep time: 20 minutes
    Cook time: 3 hours, plus cooling time
    Servings: 42 skewers


    • 2 beets (about 1 pound), 3 inches in diameter, peeled and sliced into 3/4-inch chunks
    • 1 tablespoon Carapelli Oro Verde Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for drizzling

    Whipped Ricotta and Goat Cheese:

    • 4 ounces goat cheese
    • 1/4 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
    • 1 tablespoon Carapelli Oro Verde Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1. Heat sous vide water bath to 185° F.
    2. In mixing bowl, combine beets, olive oil, thyme and salt; toss to coat. Remove beets from liquid and divide, placing them in single layer into two quart-sized vacuum-seal bags, leaving any excess liquid behind.
    3. Use vacuum sealer to remove air and double-seal bag. To use zip-top bags instead, slowly dip slightly open bags into large container filled with water, allowing water to displace air. Seal bags when air is removed.
    4. Place vacuum-sealed bag into prepared water bath, placing heavy, heat-resistant bowl on top of beets to keep them submerged, if necessary. Cook 3 hours.
    5. If you do not have a sous vide machine, bring large stock pot filled with water to rolling boil. Place vacuum-sealed bags in water. Reduce to gentle simmer, cover and cook 1 hour.
    6. Carefully remove beets from water bath and cool in sealed bag until they reach room temperature, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes more before serving.
    7. In mini food processor, cream goat cheese, ricotta and olive oil until smooth. Add zest, salt and pepper: stir to combine.
    8. Transfer cheese mixture to piping bag fitted with star tip and refrigerate until ready to use.
    9. To serve, remove beets from bag and arrange on serving platter. Pipe dollop of Whipped Ricotta and Goat Cheese onto each beet. Drizzle with olive oil.
    10. Garnish with arugula and pinch of flaked sea salt; place skewer through each beet to serve.
