Roasted Red Beet Hummus

Jennifer Brewer | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 4 people

This blood-red, protein-rich hummus is fun for parties. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds and serve with sesame rice crackers for a gluten-free goodie.

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚. Place beet chunks on a baking sheet; drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 30–40 minutes, or until tender. Allow to cool slightly.
  2. Transfer roasted beets to a food processor and add chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and salt. Blend until creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Adjust taste with lemon juice and salt. Refrigerate up to 3 days.
