A colorful, tasty interpretation of traditional hummus!

Serves: Appetizer or side dish

  • 1 bunch beets
  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • juice from 2 lemons
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • olive oil
  • cumin
  • paprika
  • sea salt
  • pepper
Step by Step Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wrap beets in foil and roast for 30 minutes or until tender. When beets are cool, remove skins. Alternatively, cover beets with water in a saucepan and simmer until tender, about 30 minutes, and peel when cooled.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the beets, garbanzo beans and some olive oil. Add the tahini, garlic, lemon juice and spices. Mix until smooth (you can add a small amount of water depending on desired texture) and season to taste.
  3. Enjoy with pita, chips, crackers or fresh veggies!
