Beet Hummus


  • 1 can cooked chickpeas 15.5 oz
  • 3 cups cooked beets chopped
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For topping (optional--but recommended for the "pretty" factor):

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Small slices of lemon peel


To serve with:

  1. I used sliced cucumbers, baby carrots, pita chips and whole wheat naan (Indian bread) that I grilled on a grill pan


  1.  In a food processor (or blender), add in all the ingredients...and blend. That's it guys.

Recipe Notes

Tip: Depending on your food processor/blender you may need to help it along. Stop when it doesn't seem to be doing anything, turn it OFF, then mix it with a spoon or rubber spatula. If need be, add a little more olive oil!
