Horseradish beetroot dip is going to be your new favorite snack! Beets are one of those tricky foods that I love to eat but are messssayyy.

There’s always that moment when beet juice gets on something and you scramble to get it cleaned up asap before it gets stained pink forever.

This is a really simple dip. I’ve served this at a New Year’s Eve party with some veggies and crackers and hit was such a hit.

It’s kind of like a hummus. You can throw it on top of a salad, put it in a wrap with tons of veggies, eat it with a spoon, you know, the possibilities are endless.

How to cook beetroot:

First things first: I had some insanely ginormous beets and so my measurements may not be the same as your measurements. I’ll give you a range, and you can adjust, depending on the size of your beets!

Rinse beets and place in a pot of cold water. Bring water to a boil, then turn down to medium heat. Boil beets for 45-60 minutes, or until you can easily spear it with a skewer. You may have to top off the water throughout the boiling process.

When your beets are done, drain the water and cool in a strainer. Put beets under colder water and peel the skin off the beets with your thumb. Apply enough pressure with your thumb so that the skin kind of slips off. I found this easiest when I kept the cold water running over the beets.

How to make beetroot dip:

Coarsely chop the beets. Then, Place them in the food processor and let it run for about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and process for another 30 seconds to a minute until chunky and not smooth.

Add the horseradish, sea salt, ground white pepper, 4% yogurt and process for 10-30 seconds until combined.
