What now seems like many years ago I worked in a fabulous child care centre and whenever one of the children celebrated a birthday we would all share together in a special morning or afternoon tea. Dip, crackers and vegetable sticks inevitably formed part of this snacktime ritual, and it is here that a fabulous centre cook introduced me to Beetroot Dip. Beetroot has a natural sweetness, plus beetroot dip is pink, so it was a popular choice amongst the children. Don’t get me wrong, I have one child who loves beetroot and another that won’t even touch it. Fortunately, the one who likes beetroot is also the one who likes dip, the other one runs a mile! This recipe is simple enough to ‘cook’ with kids (with no actual cooking involved) and with just three simple ingredients, it’s a great first foray into the world of pink dip!
Do you have a beetroot lover? Will your kids eat dip as a snack?
