Nothing pairs with roasted beets like warm, crisp goat cheese croutons.

Vegetarian cuisine has never looked better! Produce-based cuisine is having a major moment in fine dining restaurants and casual eateries alike. Chef and cookbook author Hetty McKinnon has a new collection of recipes out that let the greenery shine, no meat necessary. These warm goat cheese croutons are the perfect pairing for earthy roasted beets. 

A trip to Paris invariably means high salade au chèvre chaud consumption, which is fine by me! In a city where vegetarian food can still be hard to come by, this hot goat’s cheese salad has saved me too many times to recall. This is such a beautifully simple salad with the most harmonious flavors. My version includes roasted beets, figs and a divine apple-mustard dressing. Use whatever salad leaves you have on hand for this.
