1 cup red beets, roasted and chopped (2-3 medium beets)
3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
salt to taste
Preheat oven to 375F.
Wash and scrub the beets, pat dry.
Place beets in baking dish with 1/8 inch of water in the bottom. Roast in oven for 50-60 minutes until tender. Run under cold water and skins should rub off easily. Chop into 1 inch pieces.
In blender or food processor, combine all ingredients, slowly adding oil until achieving a smooth consistency. Adjust salt to taste.
