It’s a delicious and unique combination of roasted beets and garlic, balsamic vinegar and white beans - think beet hummus without the tahini and without the chickpeas!

Description

Vegan Roasted Beet Dip is a beautiful purple dip made with only good things, like roasted garlic, walnuts, lemon and fresh herbs, that is best served with veggies and crackers.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups roasted beets (2-3 small-medium beets)
  • 8 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts, whole or chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to your liking
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey, agave or maple syrup (optional but recommended)
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  1. In a large food processor add roasted beets and garlic. (To roast beets and garlic: Peel 2-3 beets with a vegetable peeler, being sure to cut off the root end and the stem end, and chop into bite-sized pieces. Peel 8 medium to large cloves of garlic. Place beets and garlic on a large piece of foil then wrap to form a foil packet of beets. Roast at 400F for about 45 minutes until both the beets and the garlic cloves are tender. Let the veggies cool before blending into a dip. The veggies can also be kept in the fridge for 3 days or so until you are ready to make the roasted beet dip.)
  2. Add the fresh parsley, basil, walnuts, salt, pepper, lemon juice and honey to the food processor.
  3. Turn the food processor on and stream in the oil and water being sure to scrape down the sides of the food processor when necessary. Blend until very smooth.
  4. Serve beet dip chilled or at room temperature with veggies, crackers, or as a spread on sandwiches.

Notes

If dip is too thick or chunky in consistency, add 1 tablespoon of water a time until desired consistency is reached.
