I am not shy about my love for beets. I adore their sweet, earthy taste and their deep pink color. Did you know you can use beet juice as a quick lip stain? Truly a versatile veggie!

My sister in law made a delicious beet dip for Christmas Eve, which inspired me to create my own version. This one is super simple to make and can be kept in the fridge for a whole week of dipping!

I love roasting my own beets, you cannot beat (pun intended) the taste. However, if you want to “cheat” you could use pre-cooked organic beets such as the Love Beets they carry at Whole Foods.

  • 2 medium beets (about 2 cups when cut )
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 T tahini
  • 2T lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • 1/4tsp coriander
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Wash beets thoroughly. Wrap each beet in tin foil and bake at 350 for one hour.
  3. When the beets are cool enough to handle, gently rub off the skin using a cloth.
  4. Chop beets into small pieces.
  5. In a food processor combine beets with all other ingredients. Adjust seasoning to taste.
