This pink beet hummus recipe is extremely easy to make, just add all ingredients to a food processor and mix it up!
For this recipe, I’m making it super easy for you as I know you’re a busy mom. No need to roast beets or soak dried chickpeas in advance. Those things are certainly nice but we don’t always have the time when you’ve got little munchkins running around.
BUT I highly recommend you get the kids to help make this recipe with you. It’s easy for them to add the ingredients to the food processor and then watch as it all mixes together. Plus they’ll love the bright pink color it makes!
Pink beet hummus can be used for a variety of things. You can use it to dip veggies or nachos, you can spread it on your toast or wraps, and a big dollop to your salads! It’s pretty, it’s versatile and a nice way to change things up from regular hummus once in a while.
WHY YOU SHOULD EAT MORE BEETS
If you don’t eat beets very often, let me convert you. Beets are incredible for your body. They are very nourishing and do a lot of wonderful things. Beets can help reduce inflammation, improve blood pressure and mental function. They’re a good source of folate, fiber, manganese, potassium and vitamin C.
Kids tend to love them because they have a sweet flavor. You can pop beets into smoothies, soups and dips like this hummus!
