For the Cashew Aioli

  • 1 cup (130 g) cashews, soaked overnight
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbs maple syrup
  • 3 Tbs water
  • pinch salt
  • 3 small garlic cloves

For the sandwich:

  • (gluten-free) bread of your choice
  • 3 medium size golden beets
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • salad of choice
  • salt and pepper, to taste


For the Cashew Aioli:

  1. Soak the cashews in water overnight or at least about 4 hours.
  2. Drain the cashews and add them with all ingredients to a blender. Process until smooth and store in the fridge.

For the sandwich:

  1. Preheat oven to 390°F (200°C) and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scrub the beets and cut off the top and bottom parts. Cut into thin slices and line up on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then bake for 20-25 minutes.
  3. Assemble the sandwich by smearing a good amount of the Cashew Aioli on a slice of bread. Add salad, tomato and beet slices. Add more Aioli, if you want, and finish with another slice of bread.
