The flavor and smooth and creamy texture of this puree is so delicious I think youll find it to be a hit with kids of any age in your house.


Beet 1 Medium
Canned white beans 15 Ounce , rinsed and drained (1 Can)
Garlic clove 1 Large , unpeeled
Lemon 1/2 , juiced (1/2 Tablespoon)
Olive oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Salt 1 Teaspoon


1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.

2. Wash beet well and place with garlic clove on a sheet of foil. Bring up sides of foil and fold to make a packet leaving room for heat to circulate inside the packet containing the beet and garlic.

3. Bake for 45 minutes or until beet is tender when poked with a knife.

4. Remove skin off of the garlic and the beet (I use a zip lock bag on my hand and slip the skin off so my hand doesn’t turn red).

5. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth.

6. Serve.
