ROASTED BEET ROOT DIP

Roasted beets and onions combined with orange juice, yogurt and spice !!BeetRootDip

Once again Wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous new year !! We had a good time spent during the vacations and are back with a whirlwind trip. It has been a while I’ve hopped on to other blogs to see what flavorful recipes have been dished out at my blogger friends kitchens !  I will now be  able  to visit your blogs/posts and to start the new year is my post of a Roasted Beetroot Dip. I had come across this dip at one of our local deli’s and was glad to find the ingredients but off course no quantities mentioned. So have my own take of this dip/chutney and sure this is a good and healthy recipe with the orange, beet, yogurt into it.

Ingredients:
1 cup beets, peeled, chopped, roasted
1/2 cup onions, sliced, roasted
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup yogurt
pinch of chili powder
1  garlic clove
salt to taste
oil or oil spray for roasting

Preparation Method:
1. Roast the beets till soft and tender.(I use pan for roasting, alternately one can oven roast the beets, but its time consuming)
2. Roast the onions till they turn slightly brown/translucent.
3. Combine all the ingredients and blend together to make a fine paste.
4. Serve with bread/toasts/chips.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2 - 4
