Roasted Beet Hummus

Isn’t health beautiful? Why yes, it is.

After my first go with beets last month for my fudgy beet cupcakes, I had a couple extra roasted beets in my fridge that I was hungry to use up. I was also making a batch of hummus that week. Clearly the solution was beet hummus.

I was a bit afraid of taking my first bite, now knowing it the beet would be too overpowering or altogether gross. But it was stupid delicious. The lemon, garlic and olive oil helped temper the flavor of the beet perfectly.

It wasn’t just me who liked it. I shared it with John and several friends and they all agreed it was spot on. Friends, behold – Roasted Beet Hummus.

What you need to know about this here hummus: It’s…

HOT pink.
Lemony with a kick of garlic.
Super creamy and flavorful.
Full of vitamins and minerals.
Perfect with pita, veggies or as a spread.

It’s also very simple to make. Once you have a roasted beet it’s a matter of throwing everything into a food processor or blender and whisking away. It also keeps for about a week in the fridge, making it the perfect weekday lunch solution or take-along snack.

    I just had a beet spread at a restaurant and while I know I couldn’t replicate what they did, I know I could make this and love it! Can’t wait to try it! And that it’s hot pink is a bonus…think I could even get my girls to try it!

    This recipe is amazing! My two year old is devouring it right now! It’s sweeter than I was expecting, but that’s a good thing. This will be a new staple in our house. :)

    Dana – hooray! I roasted WAY too many beets earlier this week, and they keep taunting me from the fridge. I wasn’t sure what to do with them, but this is the answer.

    wow. I hate beets, but just made this recipe for Thanksgiving and it’s really good. I always make the standard roasted garlic hummus, but want variety. Lots of company and my mother in law is vegan. Should be a hit!

    Just made this tonight as part of food prep for the week. It’s the sweetest, most delicious hummus ever. I’m never buying hummus again.
