I got the idea for this lovely dip a few years ago from a dear friend and it's been a huge hit in my family since. It's so versatile: you can spread it on top of crackers, dip it with vegetables, mix it with pasta, enjoy it with salads or your favourite source of protein and the list goes on.
- 4-5 boiled beets
- 12-15 sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
- 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil
- 30 almonds
- bunch of fresh basil (approx. 40 gr.)
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
Blend all the ingredients together (I find a hand blender the most useful when you are making thicker dips). If you prefer a little runnier texture add more oil. I like to leave my almonds a bit crunchy.
