  • Wash beets. Individually wrap beets in a square of Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes. Allow them to cool until they are able to be handled.

  • Remove the skins by hand or by rubbing with a paper towel. Cut beets into chunks. Transfer to a food processor or heavy-duty blender.

  • Add goat cheese, garlic, yogurt, tahini, thyme, lemon juice, salt, honey and olive oil. Pulse until smooth and thoroughly combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter. Sprinkle with pistachios and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with crackers, raw veggies or crispy pita wedges.

This was different! It has a sweet garlicy taste. I am a garlic lover so I added a bit more garlic not a good idea. Also I would saute the garlic or roast it first. I don't eat wheat so no pita for me. I tried tortilla chips no they don't work w/ this. I think it makes a good salad dressing if you like sweet & creamy which I do not. I think I will just eat it with a spoon. I will probably not make it again. The system would not let me post a photo. I ended up giving it to my neighbor Carolyn. Read More

I'm making this for the second or third time. I really enjoy the tangy goat cheese with the sweet beets. I love this with pita bread and chips, but tonight it's saltines. Tip: I roasted the beets by wrapping them in foil then putting in the air fryer for about 40 minutes. Worked great! Read More
