Colorful Beet Hummus
In terms of color, flavor, and overall presentation, this beetroot hummus has no equal. I mean, how can you not love hot pink food that’s also good for you?
I just can’t get over how bright this hummus is, it makes me love beets even more than I did before! Made with garlic, lemon, tahini and a dash of cumin and turmeric, you’re going to love this tasty recipe!
Quick and Easy Hummus Recipe
If you’re looking for an easy dip for any occasion, all this one requires is a food processor and a handful of simple ingredients.
Beets may be the clear star of this show, but the great part is you can add as much or as little as you’d like, without really compromising on taste or color.
Beets are one of my favorite foods, so I added a good beet and a half to this dish. If you want less of the beet flavor, simply start with 1/2 and work your way up–they are so ridiculously pigmented that it doesn’t need much!
Just be sure they are thoroughly cooked before blending to get all that wonderful color out (you know they are done when you can easily poke them with a fork, it will take some time though!).
Looking for a birthday party or New Years snack? I don’t know about you, but if I would have seen this pretty pink dip when I was a kid, I would have been obsessed. Just be careful to not overdo the garlic if it’s for the kiddos–it’s an acquired taste for most!
I love to put an extra dash of turmeric on top of the hummus, it makes it even more colorful with a pop of orange! Top everything off with a little bunch of parsley and you’ve got a crowd-pleasing dip for sure!
This dip is:
