Camping Recipes

Beets – you either love them or… you don’t. If you do, Beetroot Hummus will be revolutionary for you and a great way to incorporate more of this incredibly heart-healthy vegetable in your diet. And if you aren’t a beet freak, Beetroot Hummus may be just the ticket for making you a believer!

Beetroot Hummus Ingredients

  • 1 can of Sliced Beets – drained very well
  • 1 can of Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans – drained
  • 2 large cloves of Garlic – pressed
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 c of Tahini
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • approximately 1/4 c Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Dipping Items
    • Warm Pita Bread
    • Pita Chips
    • Carrots or other chopped vegetables

Beetroot Hummus Directions

Place all the beets, chickpeas, pressed garlic, lemon juice, tahini, and cumin in a food processor and turn it on.  Drizzle in the olive oil as it is blending until the mixture is smooth.  If you are using a hand blender, start with the 1/4 cup of Olive Oil. Add Salt and Pepper to taste.  Please keep in mind that if you are using salted pita chips to dip, you will need a lot less salt as the chips are already salted.

Alternatively, this makes a great sandwich spread. Stay tuned next week for the recipe!
