Beetroot and Orange Dip

Monday 15 July 2013

Move over hummus there is a new kid in town, and he goes by the name of Root. Beetroot.

I am such a huge fan of hummus, I just slather in on anything I can get my hands on. Wraps, crackers, carrots, hell even just on the side of my plate of chips, I just love the stuff! However I think I may have slightly over done it, and well frankly, I’m little sick of the stuff. So I needed a new fix, a quick grab out of the fridge, now fuss dip.

While I was on holiday, and was in a restaurant, I saw Beetroot and Orange salad on the menu sadly I didn’t try it as I was lured away by the steak (sorry but steak vs salad for dinner? Yeah such a tough decision). However the flavour combo stuck with me, so of course I had to try it, and boy am I glad I did! And so will you now.

To make you will need:
  • 4 ready cooked beetroots
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ tsp dried mint

First, dice the beetroot into smaller chunks, 8th’s will be fine, and put into a blender.

Then roll the orange on a hard surface, peel and squeeze out the juice into the blender.

Then add all the rest of the ingredients and give it a good whiz. Serve.

One of the most simple snacks you could possibly make, and perfect for all those lazy summer picnics I hope your having.

I am still tempted to have a go at making my own hummus, see if that reignites the passion in our relationship. Have you ever made it? Is it easy? Let me know below.
