Roasted Beet Sandwiches with Garlic Herb Spread


These roasted beet sandwiches are the ultimate new year lunch, in my opinion. They’re piled high with nutrition for all of our resolutions, but still have the comforting flavors of winter.

Garlic Tarragon Roasted Beet SandwichesThis roasted beet sandwiches recipe with photo was shared with us by Sabra Hummus, but was originally created by The Grateful Grazer.

I love the way these roasted beet sandwiches are made burger-style with buns, but you can also enjoy them on sliced bread. If you’re hooked on the idea of buns, there are several great dairy-free brands to choose from. One of my favorites is Rudi’s Organic. At last check, they ran a dairy-free facility, and offered several bun varieties, including gluten-free. For easy homemade buns, try my Speedy Wheat Buns or Skinny Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns.
