Beet hummus recipe

Makes 2 cups

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. beets (about 1-2 whole large beets), scrubbed, leaves removed
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 5 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest (zest from approximately 2 lemons)
  • Generous pinch of sea salt or kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste

Preparation

Place beets in about ¼-inch of water in a 375°F oven, and cook until a fork or knife can be easily inserted. (This process can be done in the microwave by carefully poking holes in the beet flesh with a fork and wrapping in a paper towel. Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes). Place slightly cooled beets and all remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Adjust seasoning to taste. Chill and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for longer storage. Serve with crackers or pita chips.
