Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free
Serves: ~1/4 cup dye

Ingredients

  • 1 beet

Instructions

  1. Wash and thoroughly scrub your beet. Then finely grate over a paper towel or thin, clean dish towel, being sure to set the towel over a plate so the beet juice doesn’t stain your countertops.
  2. Once your beet is grated, gently squeeze the beet juice into whatever you’re dying – in this case, it was buttercream frosting for vegan sugar cookies.
  3. The more juice you add, the more intense the hue (see photos).
