Quick & Easy Roasted Beet Dip

Roasted beet dip is possibly one of the most beautiful spreads there are. With that incredible magenta color, this dip is always a show stopper. Roasted beet dip is incredibly easy to whip up, and requires only a few ingredients, a baking sheet, and a food processor or blender.

Benefits of Beet Dip

With that stunning color, it is no wonder that beets are filled with heaping amounts of valuable vitamins and nutrients. So, here are ten amazing benefits to eating this earthy sweet treat, by themselves, or in this beet dip recipe.

Nitrates

The nitrates found in beets help to provide us with long lasting energy. For example, they assist in helping to keep you in tip top cardiovascular shape with exercising.

Iron

The iron content found in beets helps to oxygenate your blood! When your blood has a great flow of oxygen, it helps to prevent fatigue. Not only that, the iron from beets also helps to prevent iron deficiencies like anemia.

Betalain

Betalain is actually part of what makes a beet so beautifully red. It is a pigment found in vegetables. It is also a great antioxidant, which helps to protect our cells from damage and prevent cancer.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is so important for our eyesight. The Vitamin A content in beets help to keep your vision, especially night vision, in check. Vitamin A also helps to protect your skin cells.

Fiber

Beets are high in fiber, which are necessary for a healthy digestive system. The fiber in beets help to maintain regularity, for instance, in preventing constipation, diarrhea, IBS, and certain colon disease.

Protein

Yes, beets have protein! Another great source of plant-based protein, which is an essential part for the growth and development of body tissue.

Folic Acid

Folic acid helps your body produce and maintain new cells, and also helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer. As a medication, folic acid is used to treat folic acid deficiency and certain types of anemia.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including formation of¬†collagen, absorption of¬†iron, the proper functioning of the¬†immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage,¬†bones, and teeth.

Calcium

Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly. Some studies suggest that calcium, along with vitamin D, may have benefits beyond bone health: perhaps protecting against cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.
