How to make Beetroot Dip Recipe Served With Crackers
To begin making the Beetroot Dip Recipe, we will first have to roast the beets. You can do them two ways, in the oven or in a wok. I personally like the wok, as it is quick and easy.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a wok on medium heat; add in the diced beetroots, ginger and garlic.
Sprinkle some salt and saute on medium heat until the beetroot is cooked and tender. You can optionally cover the pan and cook the beetroot; as the steam created will make the beetroot cook faster.
Once the beetroot is cooked, bring all the ingredients into the food processor and pulse to make a dip that is smooth and creamy.
Transfer the Beetroot pesto dip into the serving bowl, squeeze in the lemon and check the salt levels. Adjust the spices to suit your taste.
Serve the Beetroot Dip as a spread or as a canape topped with cheese for your parties or fill the dip in your sandwiches along with veggies or enjoy with nachos.
