"This roasted beet recipe is such a quick and easy snack. The toasts only require 5-ingredients: Greek yogurt, za'atar, lemon juice, and bread. You can add caramelized onions or golden raisins for sweetness and fresh herbs for brightness, if you want a few extra add-ons."

Ingredients

For the Roasted Beet Toast

  • 5 Beets, medium size, greens trimmed and scrubbed
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1/4 Cup Greek yogurt, full-fat, plain
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon za’atar
  • 4 Slices multigrain bread, like Udi's gluten-free
  • 2 Tablespoons chives, parley, mint, chopped (optional)

Directions

For the Roasted Beet Toast

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Divide the beets between two 10-inch squares of foil. Season generously with salt, and wrap the foil so the beets are tightly sealed—careful not to puncture the foil. You want all the steam to be kept inside. Place the foil packets on a baking sheet and roast the beets in the oven until fork tender, 1 hour. Let the beets cool to room temperature, then use your fingers to slip off the skins.
  3. Cut the beets into small ¼-inch cubes and transfer to a mixing bowl. Stir in the yogurt, lemon juice, ½ teaspoon za’tar and ½ teaspoon salt.
  4. Place the bread on a baking sheet and toast under the broiler until browned, about 2 minutes per side.
  5. Divide the beet mixture between the bread slices and garnish with the remaining za’atar and fresh herbs, if using. Cut in half and serve immediately!

Notes

Add 1/4 cup golden raisins (soaked in warm water for ten minutes and drained) for a little extra sweetness. Caramelized onions or shallots would taste great too!
