Roasted Beet Yogurt Dip

After a wonderful week with family in Michigan, celebrating my sisters bridal shower, enjoying my moms kibbeh, my grandmothers date cookies and tons of burgers, I am ready for some clean eating. 

Don’t confuse this with a diet or anything. I just want to enjoy something light for the next  few days. I began this light eating with some cold pressed juices from Drought in Ferndale before I headed back to Seattle. I continued once I was home with some Suja green juice.

I had some golden beets on hand that I wanted to use. I roasted them with grapeseed oil until tender. Then allowed them to cool and blended them in the food processor with greek yogurt, lemon juice, curry powder.roasted beet yogurt dip

I quick pickled chiogga beets in vinegar, salt, sugar, star anise, a bay leaf and crushed red pepper flakes. To do this, simply bring the ingredients to a boil, a boil until salt and sugar dissolve.

I topped the creamy dip with crunchy toasted chickpeas!
