Ingredients

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cans beets 400g, cooked
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup tahini sauce
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • pita bread or chips
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Mince the garlic.
  • Add beets, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, tahini sauce, salt and pepper to a blender.
  • Pour in olive oil while blender is on. 
  • Blend until smooth. 
  • Serve with pita bread or chips. 

Notes

  • Make sure to drain the canned beets very well before adding to the blender.
  • If your beets are whole roughly chop them before blending.
  • Add the olive oil slowly when the blender is on so the hummus becomes extra smooth and creamy in texture.
  • If your hummus is too thick then add more olive oil or a splash of water until you reach the desired consistency.
  • If your hummus is too thin and you prefer a chunky texture then you can add canned chickpeas or white beans such as cannellini to thicken it.
  • Feel free to add different spices to taste such as cumin and sumac.
  • You can also experiment with different ingredients such as jalapenos or cayenne pepper for a spicy kick or fresh cilantro.
  • I often add 3 garlic cloves to this instead of 2, if you love the spiciness of fresh garlic then I recommend trying it!
