Delicious dips

Please excuse my brother’s hand in the photo!!

These two dips came out of a Coles magazine! My favourite one was the spinach dip, purely because I am mad about feta at the moment, and I have made many beetroot dips before! I served these two dips with some sliced olive bread and some gourmet crackers as a starter for a family meal. They were also delicious in sandwiches the next day πŸ˜€

-SPINACH DIP-

250g frozen, chopped spinach, thawed

250g tub ricotta

100g creamy feta

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons finely grated lemon juice

Option: fresh mint leaves

1. Squeeze the excess liquid from the spinach and place in a food processor along with the ricotta, feta, lemon juice/zest (and mint). Season with salt and pepper.

-BEETROOT HUMMUS-

250g baby beetroot, drained

400g can chickpeas, drained

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 teaspoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons tahini

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1. Place the beetroot, chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, tahini and cumin in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper and process until smooth.

You can also serve these dips with my homemade lavosh crackersΒ πŸ™‚
