Spring Greens & Beet Salad with Yogurt Dressing

For the Yogurt Dressing (makes about 1 cup)

½ shallot, minced
Zest from ½ lemon
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon white or red wine vinegar
½ cup yogurt ( see note 1 )
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon coriander seeds, toasted & roughly ground
Black pepper

In a small bowl combine shallot, lemon zest, a big pinch of salt, lemon juice, and vinegar. Set aside for 10 minutes. Whisk in remaining ingredients and season to taste with salt, a few grinds of black pepper, and any set aside until ready to use.

For the Salad

1 medium beet, cooked ( see note 2 )
1 small beet, uncooked, peeled & very thinly sliced
5 ounces spring greens
2 small handfuls herbs of your choice (parsley, mint, dill, tarragon)
¼ cup toasted nuts (almonds, walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts), crushed or roughly chopped
Hard cheese of your choice (pecorino, manchego, etc), shaved with a vegetable peeler

Combine beets, greens, herbs, and half the almonds in a large bowl. Add a pinch of salt, and desired amount of dressing. Toss to combine, and garnish with remaining almonds and shaved cheese. Enjoy immediately.

Note 1: Ideally, use a regular yogurt. However, if greek yogurt is all you have, thin it slightly with water to reach a looser consistency.

Note 2: Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, and add beets. Reduce to a simmer, and set the lid ajar. Check for doneness by piercing the beet with a small sharp knife - they are done when the knife slides easily into the center, usually 45 minutes to an hour.

Golden Beet Soup

  • Cook Time: 1 hour 15-20 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25-30 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4-6

Roasted beets are the base of this sunny vegan golden beet soup. Top it with a swirl of yogurt, pomegranate seeds and fresh herbs.


2 pounds medium golden beets, greens cut off

1 yellow onion, roughly chopped

Pinch of red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon kosher salt plus more serving

1/2 teaspoon black pepper plus more serving

Yogurt, chives, pomegranate seeds & sunflower seeds for serving


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Wash the beets and place them in pairs on individual sheets of aluminum foil. Drizzle the beets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Fold into loose packets and transfer to a sheet pan. Roast the beets for 50-60 minutes until they are easily pierced with a knife. Once the beets have cooled slightly, dice them.

Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Sauté the onions until they start to become soft and translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Continue cooking for 1 minute until fragrant. Stir in the beets and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Carefully transfer the soup to a blender and puree in batches. Return the soup the saucepan to reheat. Divide the soup into bowls. Swirl with yogurt and top with chives, pomegranate seeds and sunflower seeds before serving. Season with salt and pepper.

Kid Friendly Beet & Herb Pancakes

Okay, so these pancakes are meant to be shared with all you mamas and papas out there with little ones just starting to eat solids. However, these babies are so damn delicious that I’m eating them right along with my sweet girl and I think they’re suitable for everyone. Beets are one of my favorite vegetables that we grow here at Tumbleweed Farm and I’m so happy to report that Pepper loves them too! These pancakes could not be easier to whip up. They only require three main ingredients and are easily adaptable to make sweet or savory. The ones I’m sharing today are seasoned with dill and yogurt but we’ve also made these seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg and topped them with butter (and if you’re feeling fancy a drizzle of honey for good measure). These are great to whip up early in the week and enjoy as leftovers throughout the week (they should be eaten within 3 days of making) you can lightly reheat them in your oven before serving or they can be eaten cool or at room temperature.

I’ll share more of my pancake creations in the near future but we make a version of these using any type of pureed veggies, fruit and meat alike. It’s a great way to incorporate nutritious ingredients in a safe and easy treat for you little ones to gum on. I follow a loose recipe of 1 cup of puree (veggie or fruit) with two eggs. I’ll add herbs or spices to the puree before lightly frying on the stove top. These work great with leftover salmon (we make a salmon and pea version of these that’s awesome) and then you can top them with yogurt, tahini, nut butter, or simply a dollop of butter for some good old fashioned fat. I hope you and your little ones love these as much as we do. When I eat them for myself I usually double up on the yogurt and add a little lemon juice for good measure. Have fun and happy cooking with your little ones!

For the roasted lamb:

Remove the lamb from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Season the entire lamb liberally with salt and pepper. Heat 1/4 cup of canola oil in a roasting pan set over 2 burners until it begins to shimmer. Put the lamb in, top-side down and cook, without touching, until golden brown and crust has formed, about 5 minutes. Continue turning and browning each side.

Transfer pan and lamb to oven and roast until an instant read thermometer inserted into the center reads 130°F (this will be medium-rare) 45-65 minutes.

For the sweet and sour mint glaze:

Whisk together the mustard, honey and vinegar in a medium bowl, season with salt and pepper and fold in the mint. Set aside and let sit at room temperature to allow the flavors to meld.

For the beet yogurt with dill:

Put the yogurt in a medium bowl and add enough beet juice to make the sauce your desired consistency and color. Add the dill and mint and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Remove the lamb from the pan and let rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve drizzled with the sweet and sour mint glaze and serve the beet yogurt on the side.

Recipe Tips

Since this soup is served cold, any fat in the broth will congeal, and likely float on the surface of the soup. Some people may not mind, but others would find it unappetizing. Remove the layer of fat before pureeing (if you are doing so) or chilling.

Prepping raw beets can be a messy job so you will want to cover your work surface with a piece of plastic wrap, waxed paper, or old dish towel before peeling and grating. Handling the beets with bare hands will lead to some staining of the skin. It usually goes away with a few washes, but wear gloves if you don't want pink under your fingernails in the next few days. You can also try squeezing fresh lemon juice over your skin to help remove the purple tint.
