Quick Beetroot Dip

quick beetroot dip

Serves 4 (easily doubled)

I’m not a survivalist but you’d find that hard to believe if you looked inside my pantry. We may only be a two person family but I have enough food in there to feed a small village. Apart from the plethora of fudge and cake making supplies, most of my pantry is made up of tinned food, both those that I use regularly and those that I use just in case.

Beetroot is my go-to can of just in case, because paired with a few other kitchen staples, you can make a yummy frittata  or this delicious dip.  And if you’ve got two cans, you can make both!

This vegetarian dip is quick, easy, healthy and best of all, you can make it in a moment and at a moment’s notice. What’s not to love?
