How do I make hummus with roasted beets?

There are just three simple steps to make this delicious hummus recipe. Here is what you will need to do.

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients

Prepare the ingredients for the recipe by dicing  roasted beets and mincing the garlic. 

*Pro Tip: I used roasted beets that I bought at the grocery store. However, if you have time, it is easy to roast your own. Simply, cut off greens and roots from beets. Then, place them on a baking sheet, rub with olive and sprinkle with sea salt. Slow roast them in the oven at 250 degrees for about 2 hours. Remove from oven and the skin will easily slide off.

Step 2: Blend ingredients together

Add the chickpeas with juices, roasted beets, tahini and minced garlic clove to food processor or blender. Pulse to combine, then add in lemon juice, cumin and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Blend on low speed until all ingredients are well combined and consistency of hummus is smooth.

Step 3: Serve and enjoy!

Using a spatula, scoop beet hummus out of the blender and place in bowl. Drizzle with a teaspoon of olive oil and sprinkle pine nuts on top. Serve with fresh vegetables, pita chips or a baguette. This beet hummus makes an excellent centerpiece for a charcuterie board or Mezze Platter.
