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 crudités, fruits or crackers as well as an amazing spread on sandwiches and bagels.

Thanks, Amie – this is good. We made it the other day and like how different it is.
Whoa girl, this sounds fabulous!!!!
I don’t like beets plain, but I’m sure I would love this creative recipe. How creative!! 🙂
What an interesting twist on traditional hummus. It;s full of ingredients I wouldn’t normally think to include, like the avocado or beets.
Thanks Kelly…I hope you enjoy it…I’m in love with these beets, heehe!!
what a great twist on a favorite!
This sounds so similar to Khlat – a beet hummus dish. Instead of an avocado, I use tahini and Greek yogurt. Yum!
Oooo that sounds delishy…I’ll have to try it with Greek yogurt as I do love my Greek yogurt, hehe! Thanks Adelaide…have a great weekend and hope you are well…I was down in the west village last night and thinking of you…hope to see you soon for more cooking fun!
How interesting. I’m not really an avocado fan, what do you think about subbing chickpeas or cannellini beans instead?
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!
wow this sounds fantastic!!!
Thanks Nora…it’s incredible…I brought the leftovers today to spread on my sandwich!
