Tools required to make this roasted beetroot dip

What is in this beet dip?
You’ll find only a handful of ingredients in this dip, and they are:
- Olive oil
That’s it! You have the optional toppings of coriander/cilantro, nigella or black sesame seeds, and toasted sesame seeds.
How do you make a beetroot dip without yoghurt?
Most beet dip recipes use Greek-style yoghurt. Being a vegan recipe, I decided to completely opt out of the non-dairy alternatives.
Having flavours of coconut or soy didn’t feel like would work in this recipe. Getting a consistent result with vegan yoghurts would be tricky!
I also wanted to have a more robust, punchy flavour, and yoghurt would mellow it out.
How to make a creamier dip
To create a creamier dip without the use of yoghurt, you can use more tahini and olive oil.
Another trick is to process the dip ingredients for a few more minutes.
If you have a stick blender or a blender with a tamper, then you’ll get an even creamier result.
However, I bet you’re here because you wanted something a little different. Something chunky yet delicious?
Having ginger and garlic in this recipe has given it a more rustic and earthy flavour—which is exactly what I was after.
It pairs so well with sourdough bread (toasted or fresh), and it’s a healthier alternative to many other recipes you’ll see.
