Beetroot Dip Recipe

Beetroot dip is a super-nutritious snack to keep in the fridge with many of the traditional beetroot dip flavours originating or inspired by the Borani Beet Dip of Persia. I created my take on this dip some years ago and it’s a treat to share it with you.

Serves: 8-10




  • 550g roasted beetroot
  • ½ cup natural unsweetened yoghurt or dairy-free yoghurt
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • Good pinch sea salt & black pepper
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blitz to a creamy consistency.
  2. Serve with crackers, flat bread, vegetable sticks such as carrot, celery and capsicum for the ultimate veggie snack hit.
  3. Store in a jar or airtight container in fridge for 1 week.
