Ghoulish Graveyard

Beet Romesco

What a scary dip, naturally coloured with roasted beets. Romesco is  a dip made with almonds and I decided to add beets to get the "bloody" colour for Halloween. Highly nutritious and it has a good amount of fiber and protein.

2 1/2 cup cooked, peeled, chopped beets (boiled or roasted in their jackets)
1 cup toasted almonds
1 clove garlic, peeled
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
pinch of chili flakes
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup parsley
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water
2-3 blackberries
white sesame seeds
Serving suggestion:
various veggie sticks, toasted bread cutouts or breadsticks
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Using a spatula scoop into container and refrigerate.
Can be made up to 3 days in advance.
Serving Suggestion: place desired amount into serving dish. Surround with dipping vegetables or bread.  Cut blackberries into small pieces to resemble bugs/ants and sprinkle lightly with sesame seeds.
Enjoy with love
