3 beets

250 grams Tnuva’s Low-Fat Labaneh Cheese

Coarse ground black pepper to taste

Lemon zest from half a lemon

Prep time: 50 min. (45 min. boiling the beets)


1. Cook the beets for 45 min. in boiling water until they soften (or you can bake the beets for about an hour at 190 degrees Celsius). Set aside to cool.

2. Puree the beets in a blender until the texture is nearly smooth

3. Add about half of the Labaneh and blend until smooth. Taste, then decide how much more labaneh you’d like to add (it depends on the beets – if the beets are intensely flavorful and aromatic, you can add the entire quantity of labaneh. If the beets are mildly flavored, it’s best not to overpower them with labaneh).

4. Season with pepper and lemon zest.
