Beet Yogurt Dip
One of the interesting ways for making dips with yogurt, is beet yogurt dip that is so tasty and has the most amazing color. The beet and yogurt dip is a simple and healthy appetizer for any gatherings or you can even serve it a side dish.
Yield: Serves 3-4
- 1 large beet
- 2 cups plain yogurt (I used 3%)
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Cut off the greens of the beet and wash it gently, trying not to break the skin. Place the washed beet in a pot. Pour water until beet is covered. Optional: at this point you can add 1-tablespoon sugar, if you like the sweet taste. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 45 minutes (depending on size) or until beet can easily be pierced through with a fork. As soon as it is cool enough to handle, gently rub the beet to remove the outer layer of skin and then grate the beet.
In a bowl, mix the grated beet, yogurt and garlic. Season with salt. Cover and chill at least 3 hours.
