  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel beets and cut into quarters, then into ½-inch slices. Transfer to a baking sheet and drizzle with a little olive oil and salt. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes, or until tender.
  3. In a food processor, combine the drained beans, garlic, rosemary, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Process until smooth. Taste for seasonings.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Dijon and balsamic vinegar. When the beets are done roasting, toss in the beets until well dressed.
  5. Spread the white bean mixture evenly between four slices of sandwich bread, then top each with beets and some arugula. Cover with the remaining slices of bread. Cut and serve.

Chef Tips

If you have some of our White Bean Dip left over, this is the perfect sandwich for it. If you don’t have time to roast beets, use the vacuum-packed French beets instead.
