Indulge in the vibrant flavors and health benefits of Roasted Beet Hummus. This creamy, nutrient-packed dip will elevate your snack game!


Roasted Beet Hummus

Hummus is a staple in our household. It's a delicious dip for veggies, chips and pretzels or spread on chicken for a delicious meal. It's full of flavor and packed with nutrients and protein making it a great snack option. I decided to take my traditional hummus recipe and add roasted beets, mostly because I wanted the beautiful red color for Easter and because I love the slight earthy taste of beets. I know what you're thinking...I do not like beets! You're in the same boat as my husband. As soon as I told him what it was he immediately made a face at me. Turns out, we like this better than the traditional hummus! It's so yummy and creamy with bright notes of fresh garlic and lemon and the beets gave it a slight sweet taste. Bonus, beets have so many great health benefits including giving you more stamina during exercise, heart disease and stroke prevention, lower blood pressure and full of cancer fighting antioxidants. This Roasted Beet Hummus is a dip you can feel great about eating!



Roasted Beet Hummus makes the perfect addition to an Easter Charcuterie Basket with its beautiful bright colors.
