Every good night in or weekend gathering needs some tasty nibbles to kick it off. This vibrant beetroot dip with caraway toasts for dunking is not only easy-to-make and delicious but beautiful too.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Combine the beetroot, yogurt, mint, lemon juice and a little seasoning in a blender; whizz until smooth. Spoon the mixture into a bowl and scatter over the extra mint.
  2. Cut the opened pitta halves into triangles (3 per half pitta). Put them in a bowl and toss with the oil and crushed caraway seeds.
  3. Spread the pitta triangles out on a large baking sheet. Toast in the oven for 6 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until golden and crisp. Serve the beetroot dip with the pitta crisps for dunking.
