Spicy Beet Dip

This guilt-free dip is sure to please at your next  party! 12 servings (2 tablespoons dip each)

Makes 12 servings

3 medium beets

1 small clove garlic

1/4 cup Fat Free plain yogurt or Greek Fat Free plain yogurt

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons honey

Dash ground red pepper (cayenne)


1.Heat oven to 425°F. Remove greens from beets, leaving about 1/2 inch of stem. Do not trim or cut root. Wash beets well. Tightly wrap beets in double layer of foil, and roast on cookie sheet 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until tender. When beets are cool enough to handle, peel, discarding stems and root ends. Cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges.


2.In food processor bowl with metal blade, and with processor running, drop garlic clove through feed tube. Process with on-and-off pulses until finely chopped. Add cooled, roasted beets and remaining ingredients. Cover; process until smooth. Place in serving bowl.


3.Serve as dip with fresh vegetables as desired. Cover and refrigerate any remaining dip.

Makes 12 servings (2 tablespoons dip each)
