  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 4 tartines

Sushi seasonings such as ginger, wasabi, and rice vinegar add bright flavor notes to these jewel-tone tartines, a French version of the open-faced sandwich. If beets aren’t your thing, feel free to substitute grated carrots, which are just as sweet and colorful. And if you can’t find German-style rye bread, any whole grain bread will taste great in this satisfying open-face sandwich.

  • 2½ teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 large beet (6 oz.), shredded
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons wasabi paste
  • 4 slices whole grain rye or sourdough bread, toasted
  • ¾ cup broccoli sprouts or alfalfa sprouts


  1. In a bowl stir together 1½ tsp. of the vinegar and the ginger. Add beet; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

about the author

Mary Margaret Chappell

When Mary Margaret Chappell first started out in the plant-based food world as a writer, editor, and recipe developer, she was a bacon-loving former pastry chef who didn’t think she could ever cook without butter. Fourteen years, four cookbooks, dozens of cooking classes, and hundreds of recipes later, her favorite thing in the world is sharing the tips, techniques, and recipes that show just how easy and delicious whole-food, plant-based cooking can be. The former food editor of Vegetarian Times magazine has done away with her dependency on butter and is honing her skills at baking with natural sweeteners. 

Mary Margaret lives in France, where plant-based eating can often be a challenge, but the fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes available are simply amazing.
