To come up with this perfected recipe, I personally made 10 of the top rated beetroot dips from the most reputable of authors I could find, I discovered that many of them were either bland or just overworked, so combining the best of the ingredients and with the addition of parsley I feel we have created not only the best tasting but the healthiest beetroot dip out there. I challenge you to find one better.

Ingredients
  • 500 g beets cooked/boiled
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leafed parsley chopped and loosely packed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice about half a medium lemon
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
Garnish (Optional)
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts for decoration
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for decoration
Instructions
  1. If you didn't buy already cooked beets, cook them first by trimming them and placing them in a medium-sized pot and covering with water plus a little extra. Bring to the boil and let simmer for 20-30 minutes. Run cold water over them and allow it to cool before peeling.

  2. Once the beets are done it's as easy as placing all the ingredients except the garnish items into a food processor and blending for two minutes, or until the desired texture is achieved.

  3. Spoon into your serving dish and with the back of a spoon make a hole in the middle of the dip, throw your pine nuts in and pour over the olive oil.
