Upgrade your hummus game this Valentine's day (or any other day) with this beautiful, bright pink beet hummus. It makes for a festive appetizer or something fancy to snack on while you cook your dinner. We like to thinly slice (on a mandoline) an assortment of seasonal root veggies to make it uber-healthy, but it tastes just as good with pita chips or warm bread.
The secret here is to use high-quality tahini (remember - there is no hummus without tahini!) such as our favorite one from Seed and Mill. For a limited time, get 10% off Seed and Mill products with code KYOORDFRIEND10 on www.seedandmill.com
If you’re pushed for time, don’t fret about using home-cooked chickpeas – you can still harness the flavor with canned ones. On the other hand - try to cook your beet, since pre-cooked beets, while taste great, might affect the color and the hummus won’t be as bright.
Save this spread in the fridge, covered, for about 4-5 days. Make sure to stir through fresh olive oil to freshen it up!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
