Tame those earthy red beets with this sweet, nutty, and nutritious hummus recipe. It's a colorful winter treat that won't disappoint!
Ingredients
  • 1 15 oz can garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas)
  • 1 C cubed precooked red beets*
  • ¾ C chopped walnuts
  • ⅓ C raw honey
  • ⅛ C olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Start by draining and rinsing the garbanzo beans, and then remove the skins from the beans by gently pinching them between your fingers. (When in a hurry, I have been known to skip this step. The hummus is still tasty, but has less of a creamy texture.)
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Initially blend on a low setting until the nuts are finely chopped and then blend on high for 2-3 minutes until the hummus is smooth.
  3. The hummus is immediately ready to serve and will last up to one week in your refrigerator. Serve with your favorite pitas, crackers, or veggie sticks. To dress this hummus up, it pairs particularly well with wheat crackers, a sprinkle of chopped walnuts and blue cheese, and a drizzle of honey.
