Minted Beetroot and Feta Dip

Starter or snack
If you have a food processor or stick blender this vibrant coloured dip can be blitzed together in minutes. Beetroot is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre, energy boosting natural sugars and body building protein, no wonder it is regarded as a superfood.
Prep 15 minutes
Serves 4

250 g (9 oz) pack cooked beetroot in natural juices
11/2 teaspoons harissa spice paste
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
110g (4 oz) feta cheese, drained, crumbled
3 stems fresh mint leaves torn from stems
4 tablespoons 0% fat Greek yogurt
1/2 pomegranate, seeds removed
160 g pack Manomasa White Cheddar Tortilla Chips

1. Drain the beetroot juices into a processor or stick blender cup. Roughly chop the beetroot then blitz with the harissa, vinegar and a little salt and pepper until a coarse puree.

2.Reserve one quarter of the feta and a few tiny mint leaves for garnish, strip the remaining leaves from the stems and add to the beetroot with the yogurt. Blend again until smooth.

3.Spoon the dip into a bowl, garnish with the remaining feta, reserved mint leaves and pomegranate seeds. Serve with the tortilla chips for dunking.

Cook’s tip
