Recipe by::
Recipe type: Spread, Snack, Appetizer
Serves: About 1-1/2 cups
Ingredients
  • 4 medium beets, trimmed and well-scrubbed (leave peels on)
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Fine sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Wrap the beets in foil, completely enclosing. Place foil pack on a baking sheet and roast for 50 to 60 minutes until very easily pierce with tines of a fork. Let cool completely.
  3. Unwrap beets. Wearing gloves, peel or rub off skins (don't worry--they come of easily). Very coarsely chop and place in food processor.
  4. Add the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and ½ tsp salt to processor. Process until smooth. Adjust salt to taste.
Notes
Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

SUPER-EASY SHORTCUT VERSION: Use 1 and ½ 15-ounce cans of peeled baby beets (or other canned, non-pickled beets) in place of roasting the beets. Drain the beets thoroughly before using.

Spice it up: Consider adding ½ to 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, ground coriander, and or smoked paprika or sriracha to the mix!
