GUYS! It’s February, and that means one thing. It’s the month of love! What goes better with love than HOT PINK roasted beet hummus!
It has been snowing here a lot, leaving us home on the weekends to not do much more than experiment with new fun foods!
This brings us to beets! Beets have always been a food that I shied away from while growing up. Even now I really don’t know how to make them or prepare them for other foods. UNTIL NOW! Roasted beet hummus has came into our lives!
Hummus is a dip that is from the Gods. It’s super versatile. You can put it on sandwiches, eat it with veggies, anything! Similar to our super simple pesto sauce.
Who can be in a bad mood or resist a question when they see or eat HOT PINK roasted beet hummus. Not to mention that beets have a crazy amount of benefits. I’m no health nut, but can’t be mad about that.
This recipe is fairly simple. Few ingredients plus a food processor (my favorite) and there you got some hummus!
Things you’ll need to make roasted beet hummus:
- Lemon Juice
- Olive Oil
You’ll want to trim of stems and scrum the beet. Wrap ’em up in aluminum foil and toss in the oven at 375ºF for about 45 minutes or so. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Place these and blend up in the food processor first. Give it a couple spins.
Drain and rinse chickpeas. Toss into food processor with garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and tahini. Run food processor until contents are mostly smooth. Scrap down sides of container. Turn motor on, drizzle olive oil.
Serve with your favorite veggies or on sandwiches!
Easy, Tasty, Vegan!
