Are you a Beet lover or a Beet hater? Some people say they taste like dirt, I say they taste like delicious earth candy.
I like playing with words and I like thinking about interesting ways to prepare common foods. Hopefully someone looking for a Roast Beef Sandwich will come across this Roast Beet Sandwich. It’s composed of bright red roasted sweet beets, funky creamy brie, herbaceous crispy micro greens, homemade pickled red onions (love!), and horsey-fresh horseradish. For the bread, I used a fresh Harvest Loaf from Whole Foods. It’s a fantastic sweet bread loaded with nuts and seeds.
I don’t think I’ve had a better sandwich this month – including than my Game Day Pressed Roast Vegetable Sandwich.
This recipe will cover beet roasting and making pickled red onions. The red onions in particular are something you should think about keeping on hand. Pickled Red Onions can be used in sandwiches or salads, in omelets, on pizza, or as garnish for dips like hummus. Jump to recipe.
I absolutely loved the flavor combination of the brie and beets, I had never thought to combine those two before! Very tasty sandwich, not to mention easy to make (which means the world to me!), thanks for sharing!
Thanks Sam! I hope you went the extra mile and made the pickled onions too. Lots of good stuff going on with this sandwich.
