Beetroot dip

If you are a fan of the beetroot dip from the shop you will love this, I have been practising for years and this is by far my favourite!

3 medium (400 grams) beetroot
3 cloves garlic
1 onion
olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
teaspoon basil
teaspoon oregano
250 grams cream cheese

peel and dice the beetroot into about 2 cm pieces and roast in a baking tray with a little olive oil the peeled garlic and the onion peeled and diced into 2cm pieces. Roast for about 20 minutes or until the beetroot is soft  add the brown sugar sprinkled over the beetroot, onion and garlic for the last few minutes of baking to caramelise. Leave to cool.

Blend well with the cream cheese and herbs until smooth season with the salt and pepper
