This is a tasty vegan way to incorporate beets into your meal plan. When not serving as vegan, you can also modify this to a vegetarian version by springling in 1/2 to 1/3 cup of goat cheese.


  • 3 T. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 medium golden beets, peeled and chopped
  • 1 T. fresh thyme leaves
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 c. cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 c. baby arugula
  • 3 T. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ c. pistachios, chopped
  • 3 T. fresh basil leaves, chopped



Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a baking mat.


Toss the chopped golden beets with one tablespoon olive oil and fresh thyme. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Place in the pre-heated oven and roast until the beets are fork-tender and slightly browned, approximately 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.


Whisk the remaining olive oil with the balsamic vinegar and minced garlic in a small bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Transfer dressing to an airtight serving container and set aside.


Add the tomatoes, red onion, and baby arugula to a large salad bowl or serving platter. Top with the roasted beets, pistachios, and fresh basil. Serve immediately with the balsamic dressing on the side. Enjoy!
