You can never go wrong with a dip alongside your veggies, tortilla, or bread. It’s a perfect serving with other munchies at your table. It is also vegan and happens to be super healthy too!
You will need the following ingredients:
- ½ cup cooked beets
- 1 clove garlic
- ½ cup butter beans or chickpeas
- ¼ tahini
- ½ lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons water
In a pan place the beetroots and fill it with water until it covers the beetroots. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice on top and leave to boil for 45 minutes to 1 hour.Remove the beets from the water and place them ina bowl of cold water. This will facilitate the peeling process. Peel the beetroots and then cut them into cubes.
In the blender: add ½ a cup of boiled beets, 1 clove of garlic, ½ a cup of chickpeas (or butter beans), ¼ a cup of tahini, squeeze half a lemon, add 2 tablespoons of water, and a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.
Blend the ingredients together until you achieve a smooth texture.
You can have it as a side dip to a number of options. For the health enthusiasts, enjoy it veggies like carrots and celery. They also taste great together.
If it’s a gathering or a party and you are serving crackers or tortillas, it is the perfect dip on the side.
This dip is a crowd lover! It’s for vegans, vegetarians, the health conscious, or anyone who just wants to enjoy an awesome dip.
