SHAMANDAR DIP

On January 20, 2014 by Tina Diep

shamandarBeets are very healthy and so great for your body that I try to incorporate these delicious root vegetables in my meals whenever possible. I took this recipe for Shamandar Dip from Suzanne Husseini’s Modern Flavors of Arabia, a great cookbook filled with mouthwatering photos and easy-to-make recipes. I have to say that this beet-based dip took me by surprise. There are million ways to eat this – I recommend eating it with pita bread or trying it on arugula salad.
