Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until smooth. Chill and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Freeze for longer storage.

*To cook the beets, cut off the tops, scrub the roots clean, and put them in a covered dish with 1/4 inch water. You can also roast them by coating them with oil and placing them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake at 375 until easily penetrated with a knife or fork. For stovetop cooking, cover beets with water in a saucepan and simmer until tender, about 1/2 hour. Peel once they have cooled.

Serve with pita chips, fresh pita bread, or enjoy with sliced cucumbers or lemon cucumbers for extra fresh crunch.
