Beet Hummus: A Healthy Treat

August 8, 2015

 

Summer is the season of picnics so I thought I would post one of my favourite summer treats, beet hummus! This healthy snack tastes great and looks fun! 

 

Ingredients: 

3 medium sized roasted beets (wrap each beet with some olive oil in it’s own tinfoil. Roast at 400F for around 45 minutes and let cool. Make sure you can poke them with a fork. It is easiest to let them cool over night then next morning peel and cube the beets).

1 clove of garlic

1 and a half 900mg cans of chickpeas 

2 tablespoons of organic tahini

salt and pepper

2 lemons

Olive oil to taste

 

 

Instructions:

  • Roast beets, let cool, peel and cut into chucks and blend in a food processor (or vitamix for you lucky people). I add the left over olive from the bottom of the tinfoil to the beets to make them less dry. 

  • Add in tahini, chickpeas (start with 1 can then add to taste), garlic and blend.

  • Add in salt and pepper to taste. Then add freshly squeezed lemons to taste so start with one then increase to more

  • If it is too dry, you can add more lemon juice/water/olive oil. 

  • Serve with veggies or you favourite crackers.

 

Enjoy!!
