Halloween is right around the corner and kids love spooky food. Use that to your advantage and sneak some beets into them! This is a perfect protein packed meal and can be served with baked blue corn chips, raw veggies, or even rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla for a wrap. After a yummy dinner like this you can send your kids out to get candy with a clear conscience.

Vegetarian Recipes: Beet Dip

You don’t taste the beets, but you could use 1 cup of cooked spinach, or even 1 avocado in place of the beets to make it a green dip instead of a red one.

Spooky Vampire (Beet) Dip
Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup beet, cooked
  • 1 cup chickpeas, cooked
  • ½ cup silken tofu
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon dried garlic (or ¼ clove fresh)
  • juice of ½ lime
  • ground hot pepper, to taste (cayenne, chipotle, red pepper flakes)
  • salt, to taste

Put everything except the hot pepper and salt into a food processor and process until smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides down so that the whole dip gets a creamy consistency.

Taste and then add the salt and hot pepper until it’s just the way you like it.
