This delicious hummus took all of five minutes to make from start to dipping. I used canned beets fro this recipe but steamed fresh beets would be amazing and even more flavorful. I love garlic more than most people and actually used three cloves for this dip, but I wrote the recipe out for two. Feel free to add less or more depending on your preferences, I know garlic can be a bit polarizing! This hummus tasted really nice with some toasted pita chips; the garlic’s bite made it kind of addictive for me. If you’re not a garlic fan I think subbing it out for some jalapeño would work nicely.
If you use canned beets like I did make sure to drain very well before adding to the blender.
