With the earthy flavour of roast beetroot and creamy white beans blitzed together with sharp Forvm Cabernet Sauvignon vinegar, serve this fabulous dip with Sardinian charcoal parchment crackers as a colourful addition to your platters. 

Makes approx. 2 cups

2 small beetroot, scrubbed
Extra virgin olive oil (EVO)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1½ cups El Navarrico large white beans, rinsed and drained
2 tsp Forvm Cabernet Sauvignon vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp toasted Pinoli pine nuts, to serve
1 Tbsp flat leaf parsley leaves, to serve

Toss beetroot in a small amount of EVO and wrap in foil. Roast in a preheated oven at 190°C for 40-50 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside until cool enough to handle then remove the skins.

Roughly chop the beetroot and add to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to chop. Now add the garlic, white beans, vinegar and 2 Tbsp EVO and process until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Spoon into a shallow bowl and serve garnished with pine nuts and parsley.
