Cheesy Walnut Beet Sauce

If you like pesto then you’re going to love this cheesy walnut beet sauce! Extra virgin olive oil, freshly grated parmesan cheese, chopped beets, walnuts, and soy sauce are pulsed together into a perfectly cheesy, slightly salty, slightly sweet sauce that you’ll want to drizzle over everything.

*To make this a super quick recipe, I used pre-boiled beets from Trader Joes.
