I love using hummus as a dip for my vegetables, especially when it is as pretty as this pink Beet Hummus!
I ended up getting a decent harvest of beets from my garden this year, so I peeled, sliced and froze them and I'm looking forward to enjoying this fresh and colourful dip all winter long! If you like beets and you like hummus, be sure to give this recipe a try!
- Garlic- If you want a more pronounced garlic flavor, you can add an additional clove. You can also skip roasting it if you prefer.
- Almond Butter- You could also use tahini (classic in hummus- I just rarely have it on hand), another nut butter or even Greek yogurt instead. If using Greek yogurt, don't add water unless you want a thinner hummus.
- Lemon Juice
- Water- You can add more or less water depending on your preference.
- Olive Oil- Avocado oil would work as a substitute.
- Fine Sea Salt
- Roast beets and garlic.
- Blend everything together.
Store leftover beet hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
