Easy Beetroot Dip

This is a simple and easy dip to make when entertaining.

5 Medium Beetroot (peeled and cut into 2cm cubes)
2 Teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons of Yoghurt (full fat)
1 clove garlic (crushed)
Salt & Pepper
Water for Cooking

In a medium pot, place the cut beetroot cubes and cover with just enough water.  Add the Apple Cider Vinegar and bring to a gentle boil on medium to high heat.  Reduce the heat and allow to simmer gently for 20 minutes or until the beetroot is cooked through.  Test with a fork or skewer.

Strain the water from the pot and allow the beetroot to cool for 5-10 minutes.  Place the beetroot in a kitchen whiz or blender, add the yoghurt, crushed garlic, salt and pepper and blend until it’s smooth.  The dip should be a smooth and thick consistency.

I use rubber gloves when peeling beetroot to avoid staining the hands.  I add vinegar to the cooking process as this helps bring out the sweetness of the beetroot.  If you do not have Apple Cider Vinegar feel free to use what ever you may have in your pantry.  When using different types of vinegars, some are very strong and acidic and others such as Balsamic are sweet.  Add a little at a time to the beetroot to ensure that you are happy with the balance.

Enjoy!

Most importantly, it is very healthy and nutritious!!! 😉 By the way, here are my comments about the recent update on your blog. I really like the bright green color which is very eye-catching and I believe this color has a stimulating effect on our appetite 😉 I also like how well you structure the website. However, I kinda wish you have a home page and a about page where we can get to know you or your blog a bit more. Anyway, you did a good job Milanka!!!! 🙂 Have a lovely day! ❤

    1. Dear Khloe, thank you for your comments much appreciated. I have been trying to create a home page or about me page and to be perfectly honest don’t know where to go to create one. I am still struggling with the widgets, side bars. I would also love to create a side bar or add photos to the right hand side of the blog. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you. I am a novice in the blogging world and my computer skills are, well let’s just say I am happy to learn more so I can navigate around my blog. I just discovered where the Categories section was.

      1. You’re most welcome dear 🙂 I’m so sorry that I’m not good at explaining how I added the about page. However, I found you a link where you can learn how to add about page. I’m sure it explains way better than I do. Here is the link: https://ithemes.com/tutorials/creating-wordpress-page/ Once you added the about page and there will be a home page automatically added to you blog. Well, I’m actually the same who doesn’t how those things work but I tried to find it online and it worked 😉 Hope you find the link helpful! ❤
