We made beet dip. We talked a lot about beets being maligned due to their unattractive exterior. We noticed all the bad stuff about them. “They’re hairy.” “They smell like dirt.” “They look like fat carrots.”
And then we tasted them….the dip was delicious! Even better than I expected and I love beets.
1.5 pounds beets
3/4 cup sour creme
Juice of 1 lemon
1 clove garlic
1 tsp salt
Roast peeled, sliced beets drizzled with olive oil at 450 degrees for abut 30-45 minutes. They should be caramelized before they are done.
Add to blender with all other ingredients and blend until smooth. Just flavor as needed.
We served this with rice crackers which were also a hit.
Again, work with your child to make some of this over the weekend. It keeps pretty well and would be great in a lunch box!
