  1. Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  2. Cooking Time: 40 minutes (if cooking beetroots from raw)
  3. Total Time: 55 minutes
  • 2 medium-sized beetroots, cooked and peeled
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A small bunch of fresh parsley, finely chopped (optional)
  1. Cook the Beetroots: If using raw beetroots, place them in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 40 minutes or until tender. Allow them to cool, then peel and chop into chunks. If using pre-cooked beetroots, proceed to the next step.
  2. Blend the Ingredients: Place the cooked beetroot chunks in a blender or food processor. Add the minced garlic, lemon juice, plain yogurt, and olive oil. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add Spices: Add the ground cumin, ground coriander, ground cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Blend again until all ingredients are well combined.
  4. Taste and Adjust: Taste the dip and adjust the seasoning if necessary. You can add more lemon juice for extra tanginess or more spices for a stronger flavour.
  5. Serve: Transfer the beetroot dip to a serving bowl. Garnish with finely chopped fresh parsley if desired. Serve with pita bread, vegetable sticks, or crackers.
