Beet and Walnut Spread


1 lb fresh beets (about 2 – 3 medium size), boiled, skinned and cut-up

1 cup walnut pieces

2 garlic cloves, chopped

one bunch cilantro, tops only

2 tbs cider vinegar or to taste

salt to taste


• In a food processor bowl crush walnuts, garlic and cilantro. Add cut-up beets. Pulse until coarsely chopped.

• Mix in vinegar and salt. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate.


Serve as an appetizer on crackers (I like Finn Crisps’ multigrain). A mug of Pale Ale (Sam Adam’s) is good.
