    Heat oven to 425°F. Line 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with foil. Place beets in baking dish; drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the honey. Sprinkle with sumac and salt. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until tender when pierced with paring knife.

    Spread hummus in boats. Top with arugula and beets. Sprinkle with goat cheese and walnuts.

  • Plain hummus is fine, but feel free to experiment with your favourite type – from garlic to roasted red pepper.
  • Not a fan of goat cheese? Feta or blue cheese both work well as substitutes.
  • Sumac is a tart spice that adds a lemony flavour to Middle Eastern dishes and spice rubs, such as za’atar. Look for it in gourmet stores or online.
