Add beets to your farmer’s market list this week and pull out your food processor, we’re making beet hummus.  Not only is this hummus recipe simple and flavorful, it’s packed with all the benefits of typical hummus plus the added punch of nutrient loaded beets.

 

Here’s what you need for this super easy, extremely tasty hummus recipe:

- 3 medium sized beets (boil beets until soft and pull the skin off)

- 1 can organic garbanzo beens

- 4 cloves organic garlic

- juice from one organic lemon

- 2 Tbs tahini

- 2 Tbs olive oil

In you food processor:

Cut your beets into smaller chunks and toss in.  Add garbanzo beans, garlic, tahini and lemon juice.  Blend.  Add a small amount of water if needed to get your desired consistency.  Add the olive oil one tablespoon at a time.  Voila!  Bright pink, nutrient packed beet hummus.

This hummus recipe is a great way to introduce beets into your family’s diet.  Beets have a high iron content, helping to reactivate and rejuvenate our body’s red blood cells.  They are known to lower blood pressure and help protect against colon and stomach cancer.

    I had some beets left from my last CSA delivery and decided to use a couple of them for this recipe. It was SO good that I licked the bowl! I added a bit of fresh pepper and some sea salt. Yum !
