Roasting small multicolored beets makes a gorgeous topping for this healthy open-face sandwich recipe. For a flavor boost, try stirring fresh or dried herbs, such as thyme or rosemary, into the goat cheese spread. Serve with roast chicken and a green salad to make it a meal.

  • Ready In

  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add beets, cover and steam until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Let stand on a clean cutting board until cool enough to handle. Rub off the skins with your fingers or a paper towel. Cut the beets into wedges or slices. Transfer to a bowl and toss with oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
  2. Stir goat cheese and milk in a medium bowl until smooth. Season with pepper. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the mixture on each piece of toast. Top with some of the beets and garnish with thyme and/or flaky salt, if desired.

This has always been one of my go-to snacks for myself or an easy one for parties. Change from balsamic to citrus for spring and summer. Delicious and healthy.
