Spruce up your kitchen with this beet hummus recipe

by | August 30, 2018

If you’re anything like me, the idea of beets is meh at best. I understand, and making a beet hummus, I was a little dubious as to how it would turn out, but this is out of this world. I have to stop myself reaching for another slice of toast in the mornings to get out the door on time!

Ingredients for beet hummus

  • Five medium sized beets, scrubbed clean, cooked, peeled, and cubed*
  • 2 Tablespoons of tahini 
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 medium-sized clove of garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon of ground cumin
  • Zest of one lemon
  • salt to taste

*To cook the beets, cut off any tops, scrub the roots clean, put them in a covered dish with about 1/4-inch of water in a 375°F oven, and cook until easily penetrated with a knife or fork. Alternatively, cover with water in a saucepan and simmer until tender, about 1/2 hour. Peel, once they have cooled.
