INGREDIENTS:

2 big beets, stalks cut off

1 small fennel, diced

5 large cloves elephant garlic, skins on

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

2 tbsp. whipping cream

4 large egg yolks, beaten

4 large egg whites, beaten until stiff

1/2 oz. margarine, melted

1 tbsp. all-purpose flour, sifted

1/2 cup whole milk

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Put beets and fennel on a cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes until cooked. Add garlic cloves at about 10 minutes before cooking time is complete.

Meanwhile, add all-purpose flour to the margarine until a thick paste has been formed. Slowly add the milk until the paste becomes thinner and thinner, but not lumpy. A runny sauce should be formed. Season with salt and black pepper and slowly heat until thickened, stirring continuously. Set aside until needed.



Peel beets and dice. Using a food processor, combine beets, fennel and garlic. Add salt, black pepper and egg yolks. Beat until smooth.

Fold in the egg whites until smooth. Pour beet and fennel mixture into a greased soufflé dish. Bake for 20 minutes until golden on top. Serve hot with a selection of choice vegetables for a family reunion or party with friends.
