This roasted beet dip is one of the most incredible dips I've ever tasted, and is loaded with cleansing nutrients. I first made a version of this recipe when I was volunteering in my mum's school kitchen. My friend Judy had her eight-year-old students hopping into this like it was hamburgers! Suffice it to say, this dip gets raves from beet skeptics.
I've spiced the original recipe up with more garlic, chile, and salt, and added some lemon juice to brighten the flavors. You will need a high-speed blender or a food processor for this one. Unlike a lot of the beet dips out there, this one is dairy free, as well as egg free, nut free, soy free, and gluten free.
I shared this brilliant beet dip with Kris and Courtney (AKA my staunch beet-phobe skeptics) who took their first bite with a dreaded wince that quickly turned into a look of orgasmic surprise, coupled with a mouse-like falsetto cry of, "I didn't know beets could taste this good!" They are now beet-loving converts.
If anyone says they don't like beets, this quick easy dip will turn them around! People far and wide agree, this beet dip is a stunner, a winner, and not to be missed!
