Sweet Beet Hummus – Great party dish!

Not only is this recipe absolutely beautiful, delicious and fun – it is healing for the Gall Bladder. Serve with pita chips & raw veggies and you will have a great ‘take me to parties’ dish.

Even if you do not like beets, you will love this dish. The only remaining taste of beets is the natural sweetness and when mixed with hummus, WOW – what a great texture and nutritious dish!


4 medium sized beets – prepared as instructed below.
2 Tablespoons of tahini sesame seed paste
1 small clove garlic, chopped
1 Tablespoons of ground cumin
5 Tablespoons of pure raw lemon juice
Generous pinch of sea salt or Kosher salt

Prepare Beets

To prepare the beets, cut off any beet tops, scrub the roots clean with a brush, cover with water in a saucepan and simmer until tender, about 1/2 hour. Peel once they have cooled.

Prepare Hummus

Place all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) and pulse until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings and ingredients as desired.
Chill for 1 hour before serving.

Eat with pita chips ( I love Stacy’s Pita Chips Multigrain) or with sliced cucumber, carrots, or celery.


You can store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for longer storage.
Makes 2 Cups.
