One thing we LOVE to snack on is hummus so I decided to give our beloved hummus a BRIGHT Makeover!
You will need
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water
3-5 tablespoons lemon juice (depending on taste)
1/4 cup tahini
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups of roasted beets
Sweet smoked paprika
Place chickpeas and purée them in a food processor with garlic, tahini, and olive oil to make it smooth. Add a little water at a time to thin out, and salt to taste.
Add roasted beets, lemon juice, and a pinch of sweet smoked paprika. Purée until smooth.
Serve this gorgeous spread together with warm pita, sliced baguette, or thinly sliced fresh veggies for dipping.
