Beet Hummus

Beet Hummus is a spreadable dry hummus made with beets, chickpeas and other vegetables. Beets are rich in antioxidants and the health benefits of this snack make it a favorite among vegetarians and vegans alike.

Beet Hummus is a hummus recipe created by celebrity chef and television presenter, Hugh A. O’ Toole. The dish was originally featured in his cookbook “Hugh’s 30-Minute Mediterranean”. Read more in detail here: beet hummus ottolenghi.

You’re missing out if you’ve never heard of beet hummus. It’s exactly as tasty as conventional hummus, but with a hint of sweetness thanks to the beets. It’s also PEENK. Hummus is delicious, but what about beet hummus? It’s entertaining. Festive. Also, it’s really tasty.

I’ve been slathering it on my daily sammich, eating it with crisp carrots, and stealing spoonfuls straight from the jar. It’s quite addictive.


How to make hummus from beets

Beet hummus is simple to prepare since everything is thrown into a food processor and mixed together. To create this beet hummus, you’ll need to do the following:

Cook the beets – Peel and coarsely chop the beets, then simmer them until fork tender on the heat. Drain the cooked chickpeas and set them aside to cool for a few minutes before continuing with the hummus preparation.

Pulse the beets — In a food processor, pulse the gently cooled beets until they resemble tiny pebbles.

Add in the other ingredients — Place the remaining ingredients in the food processor and pulse until the beet hummus reaches the desired consistency. Continue pulsing until the mixture is almost pureed if you like a thinner hummus.

Serve with a garnish — Top the homemade beet hummus with a sprinkle of olive oil, pine nuts, and/or sesame seeds on a shallow dish.


How to keep beet hummus fresh and serve it

If preserved in an airtight container, this beet hummus will last for approximately a week in the fridge. If it separates while sitting in the fridge, just give it a quick stir before serving. I wouldn’t advocate freezing this hummus since the texture would be ruined.

This beet hummus may be used as a dip or a spread. I just cooked a delicious green falafel sandwich that you must try. Oh, and I’m sure this hummus would be delicious spread on some crusty toast with a little cheese.


On a completely different subject, I’m currently putting out my July calendar and would love to know what kinds of foods you’d want me to cook! Do you want to learn more about the fundamentals? What are you grilling? How much savory vs. sweet do you want? Loves, have a wonderful almost-weekend. You’re amazing.
