Beet hummus is made with oven roasted beets, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. It's a vibrant and healthy snack or appetizer recipe.
Ingredients

  • 2 medium beet
  • 2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas, drained with liquid reserved
  • 1/3 cup chickpea liquid (or more, as needed)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.

  3. Remove the beets from the oven and slice the tail and stem off the beets. 
  4. Add the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and beets to a Vitamix or other high-powered blender. Use the tamper and blend for one minute or until smooth and creamy.
