Beet Hummus


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 large beet



Roast the beet: preheat oven to 400F. Drizzle beet in oil and wrap in foil; place on baking sheet. Roast until tender when pierced with knife, about 40-60 min.

Open foil, peel beet.

In a food processor, puree togther chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper until smooth. Add in roasted beet.

With the motor still running, slowly add 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. The recipe is very forgiving- use more beets, less olive oil, more cayenne according to preference.
