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!

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!!

Serve this dip with some tortilla chips, or smeared on a slice of baguette. Or just grab a spoon, if that’s how you roll.

  1. 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!

    1. Oh no, so sorry to hear about the troubles with the flooding! That’s devastating. Hope you’ll find some beets though. 🙂

  2. I’ve seen a few (beet) hummus recipes but YOU just topped it with your interesting combo of herbs and spices. Dill, cilantro, chili powder…..this is almost like a detox snack!

  3. We love beets at our house but never had them in a dip before. Kind of crazy because this looks and sounds incredible!!! Gotta try it! 🙂
