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!   

Beet hummus served on a white plate with chips and veggies.

Just imagine serving this hummus at your next party along with Roasted Garlic Hummus and Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus. Your guests will be so impressed!

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. 

How do I make this hummus?

  • Place beets in a food processor and blend until smooth
  • Add tahini and garlic
  • Add olive oil
  • Add seasonings

How long can I store beet hummus?

Beet hummus can be covered and refrigerated for up to 5-7 days. 

This hummus is perfect with fresh cut veggies or baked tortilla chips.

Don’t forget to PIN for later!
