Recipe: Beetroot & Tahini Dip

Beetroot & Tahini Dip platter

A dip made with love at home tastes much better than a store bought one! I love to put together a nibbles plate but since eliminating dairy from my diet I’ve had to get a little more creative. Often time is the challenge with home made goods but my Beetroot & Tahini Dip is quick and easy. I’ve made this dip on several occasion now and each time get asked to share the recipe, so here it is.

Nibbles are served… complete with Beetroot & Tahini Dip

Beetroot & Tahini Dip

2 large Beetroots
1 clove of Garlic, finely chopped
1 Red Chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
150g Tahini
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt
1 Shallot
15g Hazelnuts
Mint

Preheat oven to 180c.

Wash beetroots, quarter and place in roasting tin with skins on. Cook in the oven for approximately 30-45 minutes (until soft enough to slice easily). Allow beetroots to cool and then peel and cut into smaller chunks.

Place beetroot, garlic, chilli, tahini, olive oil and salt in a food processor and blend until relatively smooth.

Toast hazelnuts in a small saucepan on low heat for approximately 5 minutes. Allow to cool before peeling, then roughly chop.

Transfer dip mixture to a serving bowl and top with chopped shallot, hazelnuts and mint, along with a drizzle of olive oil.

Serve with vegetable sticks or crackers. It’s particularly good with these store bought crackers or these home made crackers.

Enjoy!
