How to Make Beetroot Hummus
Roast the beets
Peel your beets and remove the tips. Chop into quarter-sized pieces and then place on a baking sheet and cook at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until fork-tender. Alternatively, you can choose to steam the beets over medium heat until tender. I do not recommend boiling them.
Place all of the ingredients into a food processor and then blend until smooth. If the hummus is too thick, you can add in more water, lemon juice, or olive oil.
Adjust the salt to taste.
Garnish with ground cumin, sesame seeds, or fresh parsley.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
