Roasted beets with cashew garlic sauce

Spread the love

Roasted beets with cashew garlic sauce – A healthy appetizer inspired by Oceanos, a Mediterranean restaurant in NJ. We visited Oceanos this past December to celebrate a special birthday, the food was delicious and the ambience delightful!

One of my favorite dishes was the roasted beets served with a smooth, velvety and delectable cashew garlic sauce. It took me few months to replicate this recipe but the one I have now is a sure keeper. The recipe is adapted from pinch of yum, one of my absolute favorite blogs. I’m a huge fan of Lindsey’s recipes!

This simple recipe is comprised of roasted beets cut into wedges, a 5-minute cashew garlic sauce, and “vegetable confetti” – tiny micro greens packed with nutrients. I think after the, beet salad celebration recipe,  beetroot raitatomato beetroot soup, this salad is my next favorite beet recipe.

I follow Pinch of Yum’s recipe but I double the garlic and add a piece or two of roasted beet to the food processor to make a pretty pink sauce!

One you have the sauce ready assemble the beet wedges over rinsed and drained micro greens and add a big dollop of cashew garlic sauce. Drizzle some EVOO, salt and pepper. A super healthy and detoxifying salad for lunch or dinner! The beetroots can be roasted ahead of time and the cashew sauce can be refrigerated for 3-4 days.

  1. Love roasted beets… have to try it with this garlic sauce! … I’m like you, I always try to recreate whatever I’ve eaten at a restaurant!

    1. Thank you Antonia. Would love to know your feedback. We eat beets year-round but nothing like fresh beets from your own garden.

  2. Don’t you mean few pieces of roasted “BEETS” and not “GARLIC” in step 2 of the instructions???
