Beet Spread on Toast

Sourdough Toast with Beet & Yogurt Spread

Toast is having its moment, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. For years relegated to the most forgettable role in the most forgettable meal, toast is showing up everywhere. Dressed up with inventive toppings or slathered in sweet, fragrant, seasonal jam, it’s waking us all up to a world of delicious possibilities. As members of the culinary academy, we hereby nominate toast for best lunch, best snack, and best quick dinner. This beet and yogurt spread is worthy of a lifetime achievement award–the distinctive sweet earthiness of beets tempered by tangy, creamy yogurt and the zing of green onions and sumac–and the color is red-carpet pretty. Make a double batch if you’ve got beets to use up!
