Beetroot Hummus

Yield: 1½ cups

Sweet but just a little tart, the perfect way to introduce some extra flavor by roasting some beetroot and garlic.

 

INGREDIENTS

1 red beet
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tbsp. olive oil
1½ cups cooked or canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
3 tbsp. warm water
2 tbsp. tahini paste
2 tbsp. lemon juice
½ tsp. cumin
½ tsp. coriander
salt and black pepper, to taste

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Place the beet and garlic cloves on a piece of foil and drizzle with the olive oil. Fold the foil over and seal into a packet, then place on a baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and roast for 30 minutes or until the beet is fork-tender. Carefully open the foil packet and let cool. When cool enough to handle, remove the beet skin. Place the beet and garlic cloves in the bowl of a food processor and blend. Continue blending while adding the rest of the ingredients for about 5 minutes. Keep in the fridge until ready to use. Serve with veggies!
