Ukrainian Purple Beetroot Dip

Ukrainian cuisine is rich and versatile. It boasts of vegetables, meat, fish and a myriad of salads & dips. This purple beetroot dip is a great example of a simple dish that is quick to make and healthy.

Greek Yogurt Instead of Mayonnaise

A classic version of this dip usually requires mayonnaise. But we prefer making it a bit healthier and therefore use Greek yogurt instead. We found that yogurt can be a great substitute for many mayonnaise-based dishes like this dip 😉

Beetroot or Buriak

Fun fact: Beetrot in Ukrainian is buriak or буряк. Beetroots are widely used in the Ukrainian cuisine. And in case you love them too, here is another great Ukrainian dish made of purple beetroot that you can try – Vinehret.

Beetroot Benefits

It is worth mentioning that beetroot is not only a delicious vegetable but is extremely healthy, too. Beetroots have heaps of vitamins and minerals, such as:

  • Vitamins A, Bs & C
  • Folate
  • Thiamin
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Sodium, and
  • Zinc.

Impressive, isn’t it?! And so its taste. Enjoy the recipe and stay healthy!

Bake beets

Bake your beetroots in foil in a 350 °F oven (180 °C) until they become tender. I had small beetroots, and it took me around 30 minutes to prepare them.

Tip: Prickle them with a knife. Beetroots are ready when they become soft. Leave them on a plate.

When ready, wait for approximately 20 min until the beetroots cool off.

You can also make this beetroot salad with sunflower oil. Olive oil will work great, too. Just add 3 tbsps of it instead of the Greek yogurt and mix with salt, pepper and grated garlic.
