Healthy Hummus: You Can't Beat This Easy Beet Hummus Recipe for Summer Snacking

Beets are either a love 'em or hate 'em kind of vegetable. We love beets at my house, and this easy beet hummus recipe is one of our favorites. 

You'll need:

  • 2 pounds beets, washed well
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup tahini

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the beets in a large pot and cover with water. Put into a preheated 425-degree F oven and cook until tender, about 2 hours. Drain beets well, remove the skin and cut into pieces. Allow to cool at least 1 hour. 
  2. Add the beets, garlic, coriander and lemon juice to a food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth, then slowly add the olive oil. 
  3. Pour into a bowl and stir in the tahini. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve with toasted baguette slices, pita bread, breadsticks or fresh vegetables.
