This Beet Hummus has such stunning color and amazing flavor!
I was first introduced to Beet Hummus by my cousin a couple of months ago. I finally got around to making it myself. The color is all from the beets and the flavor is amazing!
Hummus is a go-to snack for me. I love packing it in my lunch along with fresh veggies. Hummus is packed with flavor, but it’s also good for you.
What type of beans do I use in this hummus recipe?
I used the usual hummus ingredients here and use garbanzo beans. However, there’s been a few times when I didn’t have any garbanzo beans so I used a can of white cannelini beans. Either bean works fine in this recipe.
How do I cook the beets?
For cooked beets, I peel the beets first with a vegetable peeler. Next, I quarter the beets and place in a pot of water. Boil the beets until soft.
