Notes

Helpful Tips
  • Depending on your size of beet, you may want to either cut a large one in half or use a medium whole beet. Just know that a little beet goes a long way. I like the whole beet in my roasted beet hummus.
  • You can roast a beet a day or two before making this recipe or you can roast it the same day, just let it cool fully before making the hummus.
  • Roast as many beets as you like even though you only use one in this recipe. Beets make for a delicious side dish or you can slice them on your salads for a nice taste treat. Here's my recipe on how to roast beets.
  • You can cook your own chickpeas or you can use canned. I use canned in this recipe because I wanted it to be quick and easy.
  • Wash and rinse the chickpeas by dumping them from the can to a strainer and run cold water over them as you swish them around with your fingers.
  • Use as much or as little garlic. I used 2 teaspoons which would translate into 2 cloves of garlic.
