Beautiful Beet Hummus

The absolute best appetizer to bring to your next potluck! Not only is this beet hummus beautiful in colour and texture, but the flavour cannot be beet. Ha, see what I did there?

Plus who doesn’t love an easy recipe? My favourite recipes typically involved a food processor. šŸ™‚ Since you only need two beets for this hummus, I use my toaster oven to quickly roast my beets. Once roasted, toss the beets and all remaining ingredients in the food processor and give it a whirl. So easy to make! You don’t have to tell anyone if they ask. šŸ™‚

This texture of this beet hummus is so perfectly “dippable”. Is that a word? This hummus is just the right amount of thickness so it doesn’t slip off your veggies, or crackers. Use with warmed up pitas sliced into triangle wedges, or with veggie sticks. You can even use this hummus to top your next salad for a nice punch of protein.

If you’re feeling really fancy, use this hummus to top your next burger or veggie patty.

Just look how much this hummus brightens up that plate. Yum! The combo of the beet hummus with my Sweet Potato Bean Burger is absolutely incredible. Give them both a try! As usual, I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below, so drop me a line. šŸ™‚

Ingredients

  • 2 beets peeled & quartered
  • 1 tsp grape seed oil or other cooking oil
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas drained & rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Line a small tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven (I used my toaster oven for faster results) to 450 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl toss the quartered beets with the grape seed oil, dried thyme and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on your baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, or until a fork can pierce the beets. (They don't need to be too soft, just enough to puree them in a food processor.)
  • Add the beets and all remaining ingredients to a food processor, and process until combined, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Serve with pita, veggies, or crackers, enjoy!
