Notes

  • Pre-cooked beets help this dip come together in less than 10 minutes.  If you are cooking the beets on your own, plan for an extra bit of time.  The prep/cooking listing in this recipe assumes you are using cooked beets. For beet cooking time, check out this post.
  • The number of beets you use will vary depending on their size. You want about 1 lb in total.  Use your grocery store's scale if you don't have one at home.
  • This beet cashew dip yields quite a bit.  It didn't last long in our home, but feel free to half the recipe if you like.
  • Don't forget to soak those cashews and sunflower seeds in water overnight. They help thicken and make this beetroot dip nice-n-creamy. Oh - and drain 'em before you use in this dip.
