Roasted Beet Dip
(served with baked Udi’s pizza crust and Udi’s Gluten Free Baguette)
This dish was served to us as an appetizer while we were cooking up a storm in Studio City. This dip is such a beautiful color to add to your meal and it’s delicious, too. We all loved the Udi’s Gluten Free Baguette. This dip would also be fabulous with endive or blanched asparagus for dipping.
