This dip is incredibly versatile: Serve on crostini with toasted hazelnuts, fresh raspberries, and slivered green onions or chives. Serve as a dip alongside sliced autumn apples or pears and fresh raspberries. Or beat in an egg and use as a filling for baked puff pastry, topping with fresh raspberries to serve.
Place the raspberries, quartered beet, pomegranate molasses, and orange zest in a food processor or high-powered blender. Blend on high until a smooth slurry forms. Scrape down the sides with a spatula and add the chèvre and pinch of salt. Continue to blend until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Transfer to a bowl and chill for at least an hour before serving to encourage it to thicken. This dip keeps well covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
