Avocado, Beet and Feta Terrines


I'm not sure if these are technically "terrines," but terrine sounds much nicer than "mold."  I put these together under the orders of my friend Raphaelle the other night at a dinner party she hosted and they knocked everyone's socks off.  They're beautiful, flavorful, and perfect for the holidays.  They're also easy to make and they'll impress all your friends.  Give it a shot!

INGREDIENTS

Avocados
Beets
Feta

METHOD

  • Peel and slice the beets into thin disks then blanch them - 20 seconds in boiling water and then straight into cold water to stop the cooking.
  • Drain the feta and mash up the avocados
  • Layer all ingredients in stainless steel molds and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.  Finish with a crack of fresh pepper.
  • Remove the molds and voilà!  Instant crowd pleaser.
