A tangy, oil-free dressing smothers earthy roasted beets – and is topped with a super simple tofu “cheez.”




  • 3 large cloves garlic (no need to remove peel)
  • 45 medium-sized beets, leaves and stems removed
  • 1 Tbsp. capers, drained


  • 1/2 cup extra-firm tofu, pressed, drained & crumbled
  • 2 tsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • pinch sea salt


  • 3 cloves roasted garlic (the ones that roasted w/ the beets)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 cup low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tsp. prepared horseradish (not “sauce”)
  • 1 tsp. Dijon or spicy brown mustard
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. dried dill weed (or use fresh)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450-degrees F. Wrap the beets and garlic in foil and roast for about 40 minutes. Let cool completely. Once cool, clean skin off of the beets and cut into 1/2-inch chunks (or slices, if you prefer) and put the chunks into a medium-sized bowl. Stir in the capers. Remove the skin from the garlic and set aside.
  2. While the beets and garlic roast, prepare the cheez. In a small bowl, stir the crumbled tofu with the remaining ingredients. Let sit for a while so that the flavors can really get into the tofu.
  3. When the beets and garlic have cooled, make the dressing. Place the peeled garlic cloves, vinegar, broth, horseradish, mustard, and pepper into a blender. Process until smooth. Now add the dill weed and pulse a few times to incorporate. The dressing is ready to go! Add it to the beet chunks in the bowl and stir well to combine. Divide the salad between four plates and then top the salad with the cheez. Serve with fresh dill, if desired.


  • Once roasted the beets should be easy to peel – the skin should kind of rub right off. If not, use a paring knife to slice it off.
