Roasted Beetroot, Onion, and Macadamia Dip

This is impressive. A gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and dairy-free dip that is flavorful and is great as an appetizer. Why not give it a try?

I have been wanting to create a Roast Beetroot, Onion + Macadamia Dip for quite some time now. I am a fan of having crackers and dip (with a glass of white wine) on a Friday or Saturday afternoon (sometimes both), but am sick of finding dips that are packed full of preservatives and additives.

So, it was time to create my own. I already have a Guacamole (that you can check out here) and I will be sharing my hummus dip recipe soon.

This Roast Beetroot, Onion + Macadamia Dip goes really well with either my Rosemary + Sesame Seed Crackers or my Paleo Crackers and is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free.
