Let's not withhold from you any further how you can whip up this savory spread and hot crunchy pita bread...

1/2 cup of olive oil
2 tablespoon organic maple syrup
Juice and zest of 1 large lemon
1/4 teaspoon of cumin powder
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 large beet, roasted and peeled
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 basil leaf
1/2 large avocado
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
dime size of fresh ginger peeled

 

How to make it:

Sweet Beet Spread: Add all ingredients to the blender in the order listed and secure the lid. Select your spread program if you have one or start the machine, slowly increase to its highest speed, and blend for 1 minute. If air pockets form you can add a little water at a time but not too much as this will change the consistency of the spread. 

Toasted Pita Bread: Cut pita down the middle. Open pita pocket and pull edges. You may use a knife if the edges do not come apart easily. Cut pita in triangle slices and drizzle olive or avocado oil over them. There are several ways to toast pita bread... in a flat pan in the oven, in the toaster oven or toaster, or in an air fryer. The goal is for the pita bread to get slightly brown and crunchy. 

Bon appetit!
