Roasted Beet Hummus
This is an excellent variation of hummus and even healthier since it is mainly made of beets. Beets are a great source of iron amongst other things.
It also is very pretty--making a great addition to any salad.
1/3 cup roasted beets, diced
1 cup garbonzo beans (or a white bean of your choice)
1 tbsp tahini
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

- Pureé all the ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste.
