Roasting is my favorite way of cooking beets. In my opinion, this simple and effortless method brings out the best flavors in beets.

Speaking of flavor, we’ll be mixing bunch of aromatic spices together for this dip. Think: cumin, coriander, chili powder! Can you smell these?? Ahhh, so good!

Aromatic spices for Roasted Beet Dip

Together with cilantro and dill, this dip is overloaded with flavors. A touch of lemon juice is added for brightness, and a drizzle of olive oil for smoothness. I also added some walnuts for a little bit of texture. Splendid!!

  1. This looks amazing – I love beets and the wonderful colour they bring to a dish. I’ve tried making many things with beets, including ice cream, but never a dip. Can’t wait to try. 

  2. Oh my goodness…I love love love beets. Who cares if they are popular…our garden has been taken over by weeds since the basement flooded and all hands are needed on deck to get that all set up. My dad told me if I’m up for a safari, there might be some beets to pull out there though and now I´m very much hoping that the rabbits didn´t get there first!
