Nutritious Roasted Beetroot Dip in 3 Simple Steps

When nutritious beetroot is bountiful in your garden…. get roasting!

The beetroot in my vegetable garden is ready for harvest. It’s been slowly growing away without much care on my behalf. Beetroot isn’t just fabulous in hamburgers – its sweet, earthy taste is also great in tarts and salads.  It can be eaten raw, but I prefer to roast it and let all those delicious sugars caramelise.

I had some roasted beetroots left over from dinner the night before, so I decided to use them in a quick and nutritious dip.  The colour is so vibrant, you just know it must be good for you! Perfect to share with friends.
