How to make Beetroot Cheesecake

  1. For the Crust - Preheat Oven to 350F . Grease a 9 inch springform pan. In a food processor add butter, graham crackers, pecans and sugar and mix together to a coarse texture. Place the crushed mixture into pan and flatten it.
  2. Place the pan in oven and bake until golden in color. about 15 minutes. Remove the pan and allow it to cool completely.
  3. For Cheesecake - Pre heat oven to 250F . In a bowl beat together cream cheese and sugar until its fluffy. around 5 mins. Add egg replacer vanilla essence and sour cream. (make sure to scrape the mixture from sides while mixing).
  4. Pour the half the mixture on the baked crust. top with chopped beetroot and cover it with rest of the mixture. Place the pan in center of the oven rack and bake for about an hour until the cheese cake is lightly colored.
  5. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
  6. For Decoration - Heat beetroot juice in a pan. Add 1tsp Jello and mix. Allow it to cool. Pour this over the cheesecake and refrigerate for 2 hours.

My Tip:

Decoration tip- Candied Beetroot rose - Thinly slice the beetroot and keep aside. In a pan bring to boil 1/2 cup beetroot juice and 1/4 cup sugar. switch off the gas and cool. Dip the thinly slice beetroot and place them on a tray. freeze for an hour. Use these slices to create a rose on the cake. (as shown in picture) Here i have used yellow beetroot.
