Beetroot / Avocado Spread


This beetroot spread will make your heart sing and your teeth red for a moment. It’s creamy, it’s sweet, and it’s spicy. It adds a little something to your bread, meat or bland food.

It's a lovey side dish to almost anything. I love it on my almond bread

Note that beets and root veggies are not technically part of the keto diet, but if you’re going to cheat then this is a lovely way to do it.


  • ½ cup (1 dl) cashews, soaked 4 hours 
  • 1 avocado
  • 4 raw beetroots / 2 ½ cup (5 dl) grated
  • 1 lemon zest+juice (use organic – to avoid the nasty stuff that’s sprayed on conventional fruits)
  • 1 tbsp. mustard (Dijon)
  • Salt
