Beet and Yogurt Dip

  • Author: Misfits Market


  • 1 pound red beets, cleaned and trimmed
  • Water
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Optional toppings: dill, chives, goat cheese, walnuts, sesame seeds, za’atar
  • To serve: carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, celery, potatoes, crackers, bread, flaky salt


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Wrap individual beets in foil and place on a baking sheet. Cook beets until fork tender, about 1 hour.
  3. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, and then use a paper towel to rub to remove skin.
  4. Roughly chop the cooked beets, then add them to a food processor or blender. Pulse until finely chopped. Add yogurt and pulse to create a semi-coarse puree.
  5. Add lemon juice, mint leaves, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Process to blend well. Taste, and season with more salt as needed.
  6. Transfer to a wide, shallow bowl. Drizzle with remaining olive oil, garnish with optional toppings, and serve!

What is the difference between charcuterie and crudités?

A crudité platter is a tray of chopped vegetables, often served with dips or cheeses. You can think of a crudité platter as a fancy name for a veggie tray. A charcuterie board is a tray of meats, often served with a variety of cheeses. Charcuterie boards usually feature meats like prosciutto, rillettes, soppressata, or mortadella paired with cheeses and sometimes fruit or jam. For a crudité platter, you can use whatever veggies are in season. Popular choices include broccoli, cauliflower, celery, red peppers, green beans, or radishes, served alongside a creamy dip.
