Vegan Beetroot and Orange Dip

When it comes to Dips, I have many many favorite ingredients, and Beetroot is by far one of them. Wile attending markets with my little jar of dips, and meeting my “fans” I  did hear many many comments on beetroot… usually was ” i hate beetroot but this is amazing”, my favorite is still from one of my best friend…Beets taste like ground…and they do..a little-bit yes. Beets are also versatile, and loaded in antioxidants and plenty of minerals and vitamins good for your body , plus they are super cheap and available almost all year around.  The only downside with them, is they take a while to cook or roast..and the peeling…but at the end, really worth it.  This dip, takes a bit longer to make, sothis is not something you going to serve if you have unexpected guests, unless you get addicted to it and have a fresh batch in your fridge for those netflix nights.

Ingredients:

(for 2 or 1, or 3 if you like to share)

  • 3 medium beets
  • 1orange
  • 100ml of olive oil
  • 4 table spoon of tahina
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • a pinch of ginger powder or fresh grated ginger
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon

 

Boil the beets in water, add salt and pepper. They are done when you can easily poke a knife or fork in them and feel soft. Peel them over cold running water.  Zest the orange, and squeeze the juice.  Add all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Serve chilled , with cellery sticks, chips, crackers, on a cheese plate, with garlic bread, literally in any way you want….you see easy as ABC…
