RECIPE: Beet Cream Cheese Dip

Beet Dip Detail

Beet Cream Cheese Dip

1 4-oz can of sliced beets
1 8-oz package of cream cheese
1 teaspoon dill, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper

This dip can be either smooth or chunky.

If you want it chunky, place the beets on your cutting board and mince and mash with a fork. Discard the beet juice. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients until fully combined. Serve.

If you want it smooth, place all the ingredients in a food processor. Add 1 tablespoon of the beet juice. Puree until smooth. Serve.
This is so delicious as a dip. It is also fabulous with bagels and smoked salmon. People who think they don’t even like beets usually love this recipe.

oh yes i love beets! this recipe looks awesome.
im going to try using fresh beets however. (rather than beets from a can). its pretty easy to juice fresh beets and use the juicy pulp (that comes out the side of my champion juicer)for this recipe and drink the yummy therapeutic juice afterwards.
healing juice and yummy dip for a gathering of friends~~good times
