Red Velvet Dip Sauce

Red Velvet Dip

Here is a detoxing herbs and beetroot dip sauce for your summer parties, super simple and as delicious as it looks!
Simply mix beetroots with herbs, tiny bit of ginger and garlic, salt and olive oil-vinegar-lime juice. I mixed it with my detoxing chutney.
You can use is as a side dish to BBQs or as a dip sauce to your raw veggies & crisps.

Beetroot is a super power root vegetable and great for Vata and Pitta dosha, with its sweet and grounding effects. Mixing with cooling herbs will help to balance the summer heat! Make sure to have garlic and ginger really little as it might add more heat if you ever do them in summer.
Did you know that beets cleanse and cool the blood, nourish the liver, and improve the eyesight.They are also good for anemia and its juice increases stamina and was used as an aphrodisiac in Roman times.
