If you love hummus, but have a hard time digestion chickpeas, this dip is for you! Earthy beets, zucchini, and tahini come together to make this creamy, vibrant hummus. You get a lot of the flavours of traditional hummus , with the addition of a beautiful deep, sweet flavour thanks to the roasted beets. 

How to serve roasted beet hummus

  • Serve as a dip with crackers, tortilla chips, or some toasted, crusty bread. 
  • Serve with chopped raw vegetables like radishes, cucumber, bell peppers, carrots, etc.
  • Use as a sandwich or wrap spread. 
  • Add a scoop to your nourish bowl for a pop of flavour. 
  • For toppings: I topped mine with olive oil, sesame seeds and fresh parsley, but feel free to use whatever you’d like! Goat feta or cheese, za’atar or some chopped walnuts would all be delicious. 
Beetroot nutrition benefits 

Red beets get their colour from natural pigments called betalains, which have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They’re a good source of fibre and important micronutrients like folate for healthy red blood cells, as well as vitamin C, potassium, and manganese. 

Beets also encourage nitric oxide production, which can help improve blood flow, normalize blood pressure and give you a boost in the gym.
