Moroccan Beetroot Dip

+1 Butter Beans

Break out the carrot sticks and bread sticks, we’ve got a cracker of a dip here. Bursting with flavour from the rich blend of Moroccan spices, this beetroot dip holds nothing back when it comes to taste. We’ve pureed some butter beans along with the beetroot, which lightens the beetroot flavour, making it a dip that everyone is going to fall in love with.
