Equipment

  • food processor

Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium beetroots
  • 1-2 cloves gatlic adjust depending on how much garlic you like
  • 6 Tbsp strained yogurt If you're not able to find strained yogurt , you can use a thick Greek yogurt for the whole thing. If your yoghurt is too watery, you can strain it for a couple of hours in a clean cloth.
  • 2 Tbsp Turkish/Greek yogurt
  • salt to taste
  • dried mint for serving
  • olive oil for serving

Instructions
 

  • Peel the beets and boil them until they turn soft enough to grate but make sure they are not as soft as jello. Make sure they cool before you proceed to the next step otherwise the yogurt will turn into curd.
  • You can grate the beets or dice them into tiny pieces. You can also use a food processor to turn the beets into small chunks, make sure the beets do not turn into a mush.
  • Smash the garlic, put it in a bowl with the yogurt, and add salt.
  • Add the beets and mix well.
  • To decorate the dish you can drizzle some olive oil or add dried mint on top.
