Beet Hummus

IMG_2309[1]

I heard about this idea from a friend so I tried it and it was definitely worth posting!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!

I used steamed beats to make this purple hummus which was extremely simple. All you need is a regular hummus recipe (below) and at the end take two beets and throw them into the food processor. You can add as many beets as you like, I didn’t find that they changed the taste very much. It is simple and looks amazing! It’s a perfect holiday appetizer served with garlic toast or crackers.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 clove of garlic (or more if you really like a garlic taste)

19 oz of chickpeas (you can soak your own for 24hrs in water and drain or used the canned chickpeas, drained)

4 tbps fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 tbsp homemade tahini (if you used store bought use 2 tbsps, the homemade has a much strong taste)

1 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Mince the garlic into the food processor. Add chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, oil and salt. Blend until it is creamy and well mixed. If you want to thin the mixture, add a small amount water until you get your desired consistency. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
