This dip is not only nutritious and delicious, but is a stunning purplish-reddish colour. It will make any veggie platter or salad stand out.
Beets are one of my favourite foods. They often satisfy my desire for something sweet. They are bursting with nutrients like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese, vitamin C, and several B vitamins. They naturally have a cleansing effect on the liver and aid digestion. They combat anemia, and build red blood cells.
2 cups chickpeas, cooked or canned
1 large beet, cooked
3 cloves garlic
1/2 bunch cilantro
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Pinch of salt to taste
Place all ingredients in the large bowl of food processor. Using s-blade, blend until smooth. Enjoy as a dip, or as a salad dressing.
