Beets are an incredible veggie, and not just because of their bright pink hue. Beets are of the most nutritious foods on the planet.
Most beet recipes ask you to roast or boil the beet first, but that increases time spent and a great deal of the nutrients are lost when its cooked. So in this recipe were using a raw beet. Not only is the color more pungent, but you're gaining some seriously good nutrients in half of the time! Kinda genius, no?
This sauce is great as a dip for veggies, a topping for a cracker or toast. It also doubles as a salad dressing. Add some flax seed oil and it turns into a print pink salad dressing.
