Roasted Beet Hummus is an earthy spin on the traditional Middle Eastern dip. Pair it with fresh veggies or pita chips for a scrumptious snack.
Are you a beet lover? If not, I can completely relate. I used to have a shaky relationship with beets, myself. Their 'earthy' flavor didn't really get it done for me.
Fortunately, after trying beets several ways, I finally discovered that if I embraced their unique taste, I really loved them. In fact, I can officially say I am now a beet fanatic.
I have been slipping beets into all kinds of dishes lately, including my Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Tart as well as my newest favorite, Roasted Red Beet Hummus. It has all of the texture and snackability of traditional hummus, but with a subtle beet quality, not to mention a sensational color.
Seriously. Who wouldn't want to dive into a radiant bowl of jewel colored hummus?
Roasting the beets along with some garlic, gives this Roasted Red Beet Hummus a mellow and delightful flavor. It's creamy yet substantial and is a healthy and impressive appetizer to bring to any party - or to just snack on at home!
Try it as a dip with your favorite veggies and crackers or even as a spread on your next Bombay sandwich. Either way, this recipe is a knock out.
