Roasted beet hummus is slightly sweet, garlicky, creamy and delicious.
I had my first taste of beet hummus at a farmer’s market not too long ago. It was the bright beautiful color that initially caught my attention, and when I found out beets were involved, I knew I had to try a sample. Beets + Hummus? It had to be good, and that it was. Needless to say, I picked up a package to bring home, and it was devoured quickly by my family of non-beet lovers.
I picked a few beets from my garden the other day, and I had some chickpeas in my fridge which made me think of the beet hummus from the farmer’s market. I scrubbed the beets and roasted them. I mixed up some hummus and then tossed the roasted beets in. Another easy recipe!
This tastes delicious with fresh veggies, crackers or smeared on your favorite sandwich, like this Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich.
This recipe also works with leftover beets too. Here’s how you make it. . .

Which is better to make beet hummus – dried or canned chickpeas?
Dried beans that have been cooked are more economical and are my first choice. Make up a batch of these and freeze any that are left for your next batch of hummus. If using canned which are no doubt convenient, choose organic and low sodium. My favorite brand for dried or canned is Eden.
