Beet & Goat Cheese Spread

I had some beets in the fridge that I wanted to use up, so I made this. It's based on an Eatingwell.com recipe that I remembered seeing once. I just pureed cooked beets, goat cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper. It had a surprisingly light, Spring-like flavor despite the earthiness of the beets. I think it would have looked prettier if I'd had some watercress or something to sprinkle on top. If you're looking for something slightly unusual to take to party, I think this would be a crowd pleaser - even for people who "think" they don't like beets.
