Ingredients
  • 2 medium size beets
  • 1 garlic clove- minced
  • 1 can ( 15-ounce) organic Northern white beans - drain, rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. tahini sesame seed paste
  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Cook the beets: Cut off any tops and place them into a small pot filled with water and cover.
  2. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes until they are tender and a knife can slide easily through. Drain and run them under cold water to cool quickly. Peel and chop.
  3. Place all the ingredients into a Mini Prep Food Processor (or blender) and pulse or blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings as desired. Here is where you may add more tahini paste, cumin, salt or lemon juice to your preference.
  4. Chill and store in refrigerator up to 4 days, or freeze for longer.
  5. Yields: 2.5 cups
