Organic Beet & Roasted Garlic Hummus

Just a few simple ingredients and a blender is all you need to make your own delicious, fresh hummus. The fresh cooked Organic Beet that I added gives it a unique taste and is so much more nutritious. The entire prep time is only 15 minutes if you pre-cooked the beet the day before.

Recipe written by GourmetMariChef. This recipe is Vegan, Dairy-Free, and Gluten-Free.

Ingredients

  • 1 boiled and skinned organic red beet, save the waterimg_6206
  • 3 cloves of roasted garlic, I placed them in my toaster oven for a few minutes on 350°
  • 2 tbsp. cold pressed and unfiltered organic extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ organic lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 15.5 oz. can of organic chickpeas, drain the liquid.
  • 2-3 tbsp. warm beet water (from cooking the beet)
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cut up the boiled beet into the blender. I only used ¾ and reserved the rest to grate for garnishing on top of the hummus.img_6217
  2. Add the next 5 ingredients and pulse to blend.
  3. Add a little beet water into the blender, and mix on high until it is smooth.
  4. Season with the cumin, salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve with cut up veggies, crackers, or homemade oven potato chips* (below).
  6. Wash 2-3 organic potatos and cut them on a  thick setting using a mandolin. Place them in a single layer in the oven on a non-stick cookie sheet at 375° until browned on the edges. Needs flipping ½ way through. Can be flavored as you like.

  1. I love this idea! I made hummus recently, but I never thought to roast the garlic beforehand. That must give it a great flavor. I’ll also try adding in some beet next time. Excited to try this out! This gives me a good excuse to quickly finish up all my hummus so I can make another batch hehehe
