3-4 medium beets, peeled and steamed or baked (I like to get Love Beets from Costco)
1 tablespoon tahini (ground sesame paste)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 clove of garlic, minced
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Cut the steamed beets into coarse chunks and add to your food processor or blender, even a Magic Bullet.
Add the tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic.
Start by seasoning with 1/2 tsp sea salt and a dash of pepper (you can add more later).
Blend or pulse for 30 seconds - use a spoon to scrape down the sides.
Have a small taste and adjust salt and pepper, if you like.
Continue to blend or pulse until you reach the desired consistency.
Serve immediately with gluten-free crackers or sliced jicama.
