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. 

 

Ingredients:

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 

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel beets and dice them. Place in a baking dish with  a little olive oil and sea salt and bake for about an hour--or until tender. Stirring a couple times. 
  2. Pureé all the ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. 
  3. Serve with mixed greens, raw veggies, or crackers.
