Roasted Beet, Arugula & Honeyed Goat Cheese Panini
Health Highlights


2 beet(s) Beets, raw
2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil (for Beets)
2 tbsp Goat cheese, soft
1/2 tsp Honey
1 cup Gourmet lettuce mix
2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
2 slice Bread, sprouted, whole grain, Ezekiel 4:9
1/2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 dash Salt and pepper


  1. To begin roasting the beets, preheat the oven to 400°F. 
  2. Place the washed beets on a sheet of aluminum foil, and drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil. Wrap, and place in the oven for about an hour. When cooled down, remove the peel, and slice beets about 1/4-inch thick. Season to taste. (Alternatively, roast sliced and seasoned beets for 20–30 minutes at 375°F.)
  3. When ready to build the sandwich, mix the goat cheese and honey together, and in a separate bowl, coat the fresh greens with balsamic vinegar and remaining 1/2 tsp. olive oil. Season salad with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Spread the sweetened chevre on a slice of bread, stack beet slices on top, and finish with dressed greens. Top with a second slice of bread. Repeat to make the second sandwich. 
  5. Use a Panini press to finish the sandwiches, if you have one available. If not, toast and press them in a skillet or on the grill using something heavy on top, and flip after cooking for a minute or two on the first side.
