I was so inspired by my beet banana berry smoothie that I had to create another recipe with the leftover beets I had. Thus was born this amazing beet hummus!

Beets are a vegetable that is full of antioxidants. This beet hummus also has a number of nutrients that help to cleanse and detoxify your body. The betaine in the beet hummus help the liver to eliminate toxins.

It also contain pectin, a special fiber that clear the toxins that the liver removes so they are completely eliminated from your body. The betalains in this beet hummus are a pigment with powerful anti-inflammatory properties that help boost the detoxifying benefits for your body.

You will need tahini for this recipe. Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds, and it also has some amazing properties! It’s an excellent source of methionine, which helps the liver to detoxify.

It also helps promote healthy cell growth, can prevent anemia, and has more protein than most nuts! Also, because of its high alkaline mineral content, it’s easy for the body to digest, making it great for weight loss.

This beet hummus is perfect for chips, pita bread, and even other veggies as a light snack or as a beautiful and exotic appetizer for your next gathering. Plus, it’s completely vegan, so everyone can partake in this hot pink perfection!


Creatine Monohydrate


Beet hummus will keep in the fridge for about a week, so if you’re making it just for yourself to enjoy at home or on the go, don’t worry about making too much. I promise you won’t be able to stop eating this amazingly delicious and healthy treat!

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Remove the stem and most of the root from the beet. Scrub and wash with water until dirt has been removed.
  3. Drizzle beet with a little oil, wrap with aluminum foil, and roast for one hour or until a knife goes easily into it.
  4. Place the beet in a bowl (to catch the juice) and set in the refrigerator until it has cooled to just about room temperature.
  5. Once the beet is cooled, peel the beet, cut it into four and place into your food processor. Blend the beet until only small pieces are left.
  6. Add the rest of the ingredients into the food processor with the processed beet EXCEPT for the olive oil and blend until smooth.
  7. While the beet and other ingredients are processing drizzle the olive oil in slowly as the hummus is mixing.
  8. Add more salt, pepper, or lemon juice if you'd like. Add a tiny bit of water if it's too thick and blend until you reach the desired consistency.
