1 garlic clove
3 small cooked beets
1/2 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt

Make puree in a food processor outfitted with steel blade: Remove the pusher, and with processor running, drop in garlic. Once finely chopped, scrape down sides with a spatula. Add beets. Pulse about 30 times, scraping as needed, until finely chopped.
Add yogurt, and then process to a semi-coarse puree. Add honey, thyme, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Process to blend well. Let stand 5 minutes to develop flavor. Taste, and adjust flavors if needed. Transfer to a wide, shallow bowl. Drizzle on remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Top with cheese, nuts, and mint. Enjoy!
