From the foodie/travel show Spain - On the Road Again. For easy prep, you can purchase the cooked beets sealed in a vacuum-packed bag, but roasting gives them better flavour (and a drier texture). Great with pita chips.
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1 lb beets, trimmed, boiled or 1 lb roasted peeled, and cut into large chunks 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 1 -2 tablespoon lemon juice (to taste)
- kosher salt
- Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add the beets and pulse until a rough paste forms. Add the olive oil, water, and tahini and pulse a few times, just until combined. Add lemon juice and salt to taste.
