This is genius! Who knew beets would be such a scrumptious way to do hummus? This Roasted Beet Hummus is just so dang good. Easy, healthy, and crazy addictive.
I regret to inform anyone who’s listening that I’ve sadly neglected this humble purple root for years. Though beets were always stacked high at local farmer’s markets and in grocery stores, I never knew what I could do with them.
Until a couple years ago, when I started roasting those beautiful tubers. Stunning eats like Roasted Beet Salad with Blue were born. I realized roasted beets are waaayy better than canned beets. No comparison.
Now I think I’ve landed on the most breathtaking dip that exists – it’s not only spectacularly gorgeous to look at (have you ever seen such bright and vivid color without fake food coloring?)…it’s also astonishingly delicious.
This Roasted Beet Hummus is creamy, smooth, slightly sweet from beets, slightly tangy from lemons, and savory all at the same time. It boasts a primo nutty flavor from the tahini, aka sesame paste. Great for those who can’t have nuts, by the way.
And then there’s the garlic – the more the merrier.
The sweet, tangy, salty, and nutty flavors merge into a delectable dip that’s almost too good to be called a dip.
I mean, I’ve long been a hummus fan, as you will see from the mini roundup below.
But this Roasted Beet Hummus takes things to a sky-scraping new level.
Even our Littlest Little has been dipping like crazy into this Beet Hummus. The telltale giveaway is his bright magenta-purple lips 🙂
Who can blame the little guy for munching away at his pita ‘n beets?
After all, I’ve been walking around with magenta magic on the corners of my own lips lately. Guiltlessly.
Go ahead. Get on the beet bandwagon. It’s nutritious, healthy, and crazy delicious.
You won’t regret it.Print
