This hummus recipe is an easy one to prepare.  Plus, it stays fresh up to 4 days chilled, and it freezes beautifully.

I decided to make this beet hummus using white beans instead of chickpeas.  And to my surprise, it turned out super creamy and delicious!  Even my family enjoyed this beet hummus.  

 

Healthy Beet Hummus is made with staple ingredients.

For this recipe, you will need only 2 beets,  a can of white beans, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini. 

The garlic, lemon, and olive oil really temper the beet flavor, not overpowering it.  

Once you boil and peel the beets, the rest is easy!  Just blend in the rest of the ingredients with a food processor until smooth, chill, and serve! 

And it takes less than 10 minutes to make.  Perfect!

    It's been years since I made beet hummus but I really did love it. The color alone is worth making it. Hummus in any form is a favorite!

    This really does look delicious and the colour is gorgeous and it must taste wonderful with those carrot and celery sticks! This is definitely something to try, though I don't have a food processor – no space in my compact kitchen! Maybe I could do it in my Nutribullet, though there has to be a certain amount of liquid for that to work!

      Hi Sandra ! The nutribullet might work, just add increments of water to it- it should be fine. The mini prep food processor is smaller than a blender and it works like magic! For the same reason, I don't own a large food processor -no space to store it. However, I put a link to the one I own in the directions of the recipe in case you'd like to take a look. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you'll try this hummus! Xo

    Hi Anna and Liz, I have seen this hummus before at Trader Joes but have never tried it. I can only imagine it is so much better homemade, looks delicious will give it a try.

      Hi Cheri! I didn't see it at Trader Joes, I guess I missed it – but I hope you will try making this beet hummus – I feel homemade is always better.
