  • 4-6 Butter lettuce leaves

Instructions for

Roasted Beet Sandwich with Cashew Cream

To roast beets, preheat oven to 400°. Scrub the skin and pat dry. Rub with coconut oil, add a pinch of salt and wrap in foil. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until beets are tender. (Large beets may take longer.) Let beets cool enough to handle; the skins should rub right off. At this point, you can refrigerate overnight, which I prefer, or begin making the sandwiches.

Thinly slice beets with a mandolin or by hand up to ⅛ inch thick.

Spread Majestic Garlic spread on toast, generously layer beets adding a little salt and pepper to each layer, then top with butter lettuce. Serve with a dipping side of cashew cream.

Cashew Cream:

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and let soak for 30 minutes. Blend for up to 3 minutes, or until it’s smooth and creamy. Keep leftovers refrigerated.

*I prefer my cashew cream salty and cheesy, but you can adjust nutritional yeast and salt to your liking.
