This is the Best Beet Hummus recipe you’re going to find. It takes the traditional hummus recipe, and gives it a modern twist by using red beets for that potent color and burst of antioxidants! You can eat it with pita, to be sure, but add it to a salad and take it to a whole other level!



  • 2 beets
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp Tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup olive oil


Blend together the tahini, garlic, beets, and olive oil to a smooth consistency in a food processor. Add the lemon juice and season with salt & pepper to taste. If consistency is too thick, add a little bit of olive oil to desired texture.


You can add chickpeas if you want: they will turn the hummus even creamier and lighten up the color from a hot pink to a lighter one. 

If using canned beets: rinse them out well. These beets already have a lot of water in them so the more water you can extract, the thicker the mix will be.
