Almond Butter Beet Dip with Lemon & Chili
6 large beets
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil + drizzle of olive oil for roasting
2 tbsp Ezra Cohen Montreal Natural Almond Butter
2 garlic cloves
Juice and zest from one lemon
½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While your oven is heating up, peel beets, trim ends, and cut into quarters. Place beets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until beets are tender. Once done, remove from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes.
2. In a food processor, combine all ingredients, including roasted beets. If your dip is too thick, drizzle in water or more olive oil until it has reached your desired consistency. When it’s ready, spoon the dip into a bowl and top with your favorite garnish.
Store leftover dip in an airtight bowl in the fridge. It will stay fresh for about a week if you can make it last that long!
