Sweet beets and creamy goat cheese make a beautiful pairing with the nutty flavor of young greens. Mix up the flavor as you like with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary. A splash of balsamic vinegar would add a nice twist too.

Time-saving tip: Swap in canned beets! Just be sure to rinse them well if you can’t find a no added salt version.


  • 1 large beet, roasted and peeled
  • 1 Tbsp. goat cheese
  • ½ cup arugula
  • 2 slices whole-grain bread


  1. Slice the beet into thin slices.
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat.
  3. Assemble all the ingredients in a sandwich and grill lightly on both sides until golden and warmed through.
