Sweet Beet Hummus

Here’s a tasty spin on the classic hummus platter…I opted to toss in fresh beets for a sweet flavor without the added sugar.  Beets are a wonderful source of folate, potassium, dietary fiber and manganese…This beautiful Beet Hummus is incredibly tasty and pairs well as a dip for crudites, fruits or crackers as well as an amazing spread on sandwiches and bagels.

Ingredients

  • 5 large beets, scrubbed, cooked and cubed
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro
  • Pinch of sea salt and pepper

Directions

  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor; pulse until smooth.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy with gluten free crackers, pretzels and crudites.
  • Enjoy!

      Heather…chickpeas and/or cannellini beans sound like a perfectly healthy and delish swap for the avocado if you’re not a fan…also, lima beans would taste quite yummy too…Have a great weekend and enjoy..let me know if you try out the swaps!

    What an interesting twist on traditional hummus. It;s full of ingredients I wouldn’t normally think to include, like the avocado or beets.
