Can’t BEET this Hummus

I hope this post gets you on team beet (if you aren’t already), as there are so many benefits that come along with this crimson veg.

  • High source of energy
  • Fights inflammation
  • Can help lower blood pressure
  • Anti-Cancer properties
  • High in vitamins & minerals
  • Helps mental health
  • Cleanses & detoxifies the body
  • Natural aphrodisiac
  • Good for weight management

You can’t beet that!  🙂

I am trying to find more interesting ways to fit beets into my daily diet, but always end up roasting or juicing. Which are both great, but I need to start switching things up. This weekend I made Beet Hummus. It was a great change to my traditional chickpea hummus and just as easy. Simply swap your chickpeas with some raw beets.

I was super pleased with the outcome. It was fresh, earthy, sweet, and absolutely delicious. And thanks to their added benefits, I now have a new go to hummus recipe. Here it is-

  • 3 raw beets, cubed
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1.5 tbsp of tahini
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Beet Prep

Combine all ingredients in food processor and puree. Keep adding water until you reach desired consistency. Top with lemon zest and pepper and serve with your favourite vegetables or crackers.
