Bloody Mary Beet Dip

Call me a kid, but I really like to have dips and spreads on hand in my fridge. This dip boasts a bloody hue (Boo!) and has a similar texture and flavor to hummus (perfect for Costume party food!).  Since I am a big advocate for creativity, I encourage you to experiment in the seasoning department! (My favorite is cumin and cayenne!) Comment below to share how you customized the flavor!

I re-visited and re-named this recipe as I was preparing for some Autumnal Halloween fun in the community and in the home. Bring this to your next Costume party with some veggies! ….. I guarantee that some friends will appreciate you bringing a nourishing dish, considering the many sugary foods being tossed around!

A blood-nourishing, tasty treat! (no tricks!) vegan, paleo, grain free, nut free, oil free, legume free, sugar free

Ingredients

  • 3 cups butternut squash, cubed or mashed
  • 2 small beets, raw or roasted (raw lends a thicker texture; roasted will blend easier in your blender however)
  • 2-3 fresh garlic cloves
  • 2 lemons, juiced (save the rind**)
  • 2 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • black or cayenne pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors combine. Enjoy!

  • Lemon Rind: Are you entertaining or bringing this to a party? Grate a few bits of lemon zest for a lovely topping and tangy effect! Could also blend a lemon zest in for an even zest flavor throughout.
