Preparation & Cooking time: 75 – 90 mins


  • 4 whole raw beetroots (medium size)
  • 3 tbsp Organic Olive Oil
  • 2 Crushed Garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Chilli Powder (optional)
  • 250 ml Greek Yoghurt or a thick, full fat soy yogurt
  • Pinch of Salt


1 Cook the beetroot with the peel (to save minerals while cooking) for 45 to 60 minutes.

2 Let it cool down and cut into small sizes, put into a blender (or food processor); add the garlic, spices, lemon juice, yogurt, salt, 2 tsp of olive oil, the chilli and blend to a puree.

3 Pour into a bowl and drizzle over the rest of the olive oil.

TIP | Enjoy with seeded crackers, carrot or celery sticks, homemade bread, etc. This is a really nutritious snack or light meal to incorporate during Summertime. Especially good for athletes or anyone practising sports on a regular basis for the beetroot is a nutrient dense food that has nitrate – chemical naturally occurring in certain foods and is converted into nitric oxide when consumed; research shows nitric oxide can increase blood flow, improve lung function, and strengthen muscle contraction.
