Beetroot & Goats Cheese Dip

It’s earthy, creamy and nutty- this roasted beetroot dip tastes absolutely divine, and the rich hues adds a beautiful pop of colour to any grazing board.

It’s designed to be a snack, but I’ve found myself smothering it on lamb koftas, smearing it on toast with my morning eggs, anything short of simply eating it out of the container with a spoon. It’s deceptively simple to make, so make a little more than you think you’ll need; you’ll be coming back to the fridge for seconds.
