A vibrant coloured, detox-supportive dip
This beetroot and white bean dip is beautifully coloured and fantastic tasting!
High in phytonutrients and fibre, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, beetroots are a low GI/GL food, helping to keep our blood sugar levels stable, particulalry when in combination with the white beans.
This dip should help to keep you full through the afternoon if you’re enjoying it at lunch, and will also ward off pre-dinner hunger pangs if you load a little onto a few oatcakes or corn tortillas (we love the blue corn versions!).
Beetroot also provides fantastic support for the liver, so is a perfect food if you’re following a detox programme. Thyme can be overpowering in great quantities, but, similarly to garlic, has strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, so is a great herb to eat; the strong flavour of the beetroot in this dip allows us to include this wonderful herb, without you realising you’re eating raw thyme.
