Simple Beetroot Dip with Cream Cheese | Five-Ingredients
A great alternative to hummus and a good way to use beets which seem to always be in season. Serve this dip with some healthy seed crackers for a simple mid-day snack or as an appetizer at your next gathering with friends.
Place the skinned and cubed beets in a steamer and allow them to steam for 25-30 minutes, or until the beets can be pierced easily with a fork. Remove from the heat and let the beets cool slightly.
Place the cooled beets and remaining ingredients into a food processor or Vitamix and puree until smooth. Scrape down the sides as needed to ensure the entire mixture is well blended. Taste and season to taste.
Chill the dip further before serving. Try serving it with some homemade Gluten-Free Seed Crackers to your favourite people.
