Ingredients

  • 2 small cooked beets, chopped

  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained with liquid reserved

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons tahini

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cumin

Directions

  1. Combine beets, chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, salt, and cumin in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until pureed. Pour reserved chickpea liquid in slowly, with the processor running, until hummus is smooth and desired consistency is achieved.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have any leftover beets, roast 2 small beets (about 1/4 pound) in the oven wrapped in aluminum foil with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt at 375 degrees (180 degrees celsius) for 45 minutes, or until soft. You can then let cool and peel to use in the hummus.
