beet hummus

I love colorful food, there is something even more pleasing about eating food that is beautiful! One of my favorite colorful and healthy treats is beet hummus. It is easy to make, delicious and super pretty!

You can use homemade hummus or if you don't have lots of time, you can even use store bought hummus.

Typically hummus has tahini or sesame paste but I like to make a nut free version.
1 can garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 clove garlic, crushed
1-2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
dash of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Next, you will need to roast a couple of beets.

Once the roasted beets have cooled, puree them in a food processor or blender until smooth.

Next is the fun part! Slowly begin adding the beets to the hummus. The fun thing about beets is that the color is DYNAMIC and it doesn't take much to transform that hummus into someone colorful.

Keep mixing the beets until you've achieved your desired shade of pink.

The result is beautiful and a great way to brighten up a vegi plate.
