Ingredients

Roasted Beets

  • ½ lb. beets about 1 ½ cups
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper

Hummus

  • 1 ½ cups roasted beets from above
  • 15 oz. garbanzo beans canned, rinsed and drained*
  • ¼ cup tahini paste
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tsp. salt to taste
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Instructions

For the Roasted Beets:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the outer skin from beets. Remove the stem end and cut beets into ½ to 1-inch cubes.
  3. Add beets to a large bowl toss with 1 tablespoon oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Toss until well coated.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and place cut beets in a single layer. 
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until beets are tender. Flip beets halfway through to ensure even roasting.
Let beets cool to room temperature before proceeding.
  4. You can also roast whole beets instead.

For the Hummus:

  1. Place roasted beets along with the remaining hummus ingredients into a large food processor.
  2. Puree for 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl every 20-30 seconds.
  3. If you would like the hummus a little smoother, add additional water or oil.
  4. Serve beet hummus with lentil chips, vegetables or gluten free pretzels and enjoy!
