This Easy Beet Hummus Recipe Is So Pretty In Pink

This easy beet hummus recipe is so pretty in pink! It's such a beautiful, show-stopping little dish, and it's so multi-functional, too. I love serving it for holidays or special occasions with veggies and gluten-free crackers as a quick appetizer, but it also does double duty as a Mediterranean-style salad dressing, as a great filling inside an avocado for lunch or as a spread in place of mayonnaise on anything. Pink deviled eggs, anyone?

This hummus recipe keeps great in the fridge for up to eight days, so have some fun using it on leftovers, for snacks and whatever else you can dream up. It’s great topped with extra sesame seeds (as pictured), toasted pumpkin seeds or a chile-infused olive oil for a little spice. If you’re really short on time, use a clean store-bought hummus and puree with pre-cooked beets in a blender. Add extra seasonings, if desired.

Cuisine: Mediterranean
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 small pre-cooked beets
  • 2 cans (approximately 15 ounces each) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, for garnish

Here's how to make it:

  1. Sauté the onions in a skillet over medium heat until slightly browned, about 10 minutes. 
  2. Add to a blender with the rest of the ingredients and puree until smooth, adding more olive oil or a bit of water if a thinner consistency is preferred. 
  3. Season with sea salt and pepper, if desired, and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
