Beet Hummus

We love colorful meals. I always try to add a pop of color to our plates. Tonight we added a very bright pop of color with this beet hummus. I find canned beets to be so versatile that I always keep a can on hand for when I need that secret ingredient. Tonight it's the star of the show!

Not only is it a beautiful color, but the beets also bring a unique sweetness to this hummus. Just like regular hummus, it would be great with raw veggies, spread on slices of baguette, or as a dip with chips! Next time you want a new special dip or healthy snack food, give this beet hummus a try!

We ate ours with couscous and falafel over fresh spinach. The beet hummus made this meal taste fresh, light, and special.

1 can sliced beets, drained
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 Tbsp tahini
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp water
½ tsp cumin
salt and pepper

Chop the beets and place the in a blender. Add the garlic, chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, and water and blend until smooth. Chill until ready to use.
