[Recipe] Beetroot dip

In the past few years I’ve rediscovered beetroot. I used to know them only as the pickled kind from my childhood – the easy vegetable side served as a school meal, with no versatility to it. Since then I’ve found many different ways of using fresh and cooked beetroot. Beside them being healthy, they are also really fun to cook with because they turn everything a beautiful pink. But be careful of your kitchen surfaces, they can also quickly become stained. Here is one of a series of beetroot recipes I want to share with you.
