Beets add a burst of colour to this healthy dip. Use it in sandwiches in place of sandwich meats for a delicious lunchtime meal.


1 can
of cannellini or navy beans, drained and rinsed
beets, steamed or boiled until tender
1 clove
2 tablespoons
sunflower seeds, soaked in warm water for 5 minutes, and drained
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 teaspoon
Zest and juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon
olive oil


  1. Add all of the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until combined.
  2. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Puree until smooth.
  3. Taste test and adjust seasoning to your liking.
  4. Serve with warm pita bread, crackers or crunchy, fresh vegetables.


You might like more lemon juice, cumin, salt or pepper. Remember that  raw garlic taste will intensify with time.
