Recipe for beet and caramelized onion bruschetta with goat cheese crumbles. Easy, healthy vegetarian appetizer with beets and balsamic caramelized onions.



  • 3 medium beets, about 1 pound
  • 20 slices baguette, preferably whole-grain
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • ¾ cup balsamic caramelized onions
  • 3 ounces crumbled goat cheese


  1. Place beets in a large saucepan and cover generously with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until a fork inserted into the flesh of a beet comes out with little resistance, about 40 minutes. Note that over-cooking will make it difficult to slice nicely. Drain and cool until cool enough to handle.
  2. Rub skin off of beets. Slice as thinly as possible, using a mandoline or sharp knife. Divided beet slices among the baguette slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with caramelized onions and goat cheese.
