Just "Beet" It.....Roasted Beet Hummus

I know there have been a few recipes recently involving beets, but why not?  The are versatile, healthy and flippin' yum yum!

Love love love this recipe.  So perfect for a light snack.  Or perfect for a little get together "starter". It is an easy finger food and conversation starter,   Gorgeously bright, almost that of the color of a pomegranate.  Creamy and lip smacking!  Everyone is going to want this recipe.....seriously.

Roasted Beet Hummus

 It has the subtly of a traditional hummus, but by adding in the beets, you also have that slightly sweet earthiness to it.  So good I want to package it and sell it to the local mart.

You can thank me later if you don't believe me :)

Serve with veggies or easy pita bread.

1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
1 medium beet
1/4 c lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1/4 c tahini
2 tbsp evoo
1 clove garlic minced

Heat oven 375.  Lightly oil beet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cover with foil and bake in oven for roughly 1 hr.  Remove and let cool.  Remove skin and cut beet into pieces.  Add all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Season to taste.  Let cool in refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until you want to serve.
