1 large or 2 medium beets (or use steamed or roasted beets)

1/4 cup olive oil

1 garlic clove

2 T tahini paste

Juice of a lemon, or vinegar (white or cider)

1 t salt


Puree all ingredients in a food processor and taste for seasoning. It may need more salt, tahini paste or lemon. Taste – taste – taste. Serve with vegetables and chips.


Beets – wrap your whole beets, unpeeled, in a double wrap of foil coated with olive oil, salt and pepper. Seal up package and roast in 350-degree oven for 45min-1hour. Done when you can easily insert a knife through the beets. When cool, then you can peel them, so much easier.. J
