Beet Hummus
Health Rating
There are no chickpeas or legumes of any kind in this vibrant Beet Hummus which is surprising because the texture and flavor would make you think otherwise.

Ingredients


4 beet(s) Beets, raw (peels on, scrubbed to remove any dirt)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch Salt and pepper
1/4 cup Tahini
1/4 cup Lemon juice
2 clove(s) Garlic (coarsely chopped)

Instructions


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. Rub the whole beets with olive oil and salt. Put them on a baking pan and roast for approximately 1 hour, until the beets are easily pierced through with a fork. Let cool slightly.
3. When the beets are cool enough to handle, rub the skins off with a clean dishcloth (be forewarned—the beets will stain it) or use a vegetable peeler.
4. Coarsely chop the beets and put in them food processor with the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.
5. Serve with your favourite chopped veggies or gluten-free flatbread. Refrigerate leftovers, if any, in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
