A deliciously creamy, sweet yet savoury vibrant pink roasted beet hummus to snack on with veggie sticks, crackers or even by the spoonful! Warning: love at first taste guaranteed!
I love hummus. No, I mean I seriously LOVE hummus. So much, that it was one of the main reasons that I signed up for Pinterest: so I could have a dedicated Pinterest board to all the exciting hummus recipes I come across. True story.
In addition to the beloved classic hummus, I am always up to try some spiced up versions: like the hummus made with roasted hazelnuts I made based on Vegie Head‘s Adele McConnell’s The Vegan Cookbook recipe, or when I didn’t have hazelnuts at home and used some peanut butter to make the tahini even creamier. And although all said hummuses were delicious, they just don’t stand a chance against this roasted beet hummus when it comes to looks.
I mean take a closer look, that bright magenta pink (or purple depending on the light) doesn’t just make you want to reach for a spoon and dip in with a big grin on your face? No? Well then it’s just me. 🙂 I love how cheery yet elegant and sophisticated this roasted beet hummus looks like, and I haven’t even started on the taste!
Love how the puréed roasted beet changes the usual, well-known hummus taste: here you get a mix of sweet and earthy taste due to the caramellized beets, which is just fabulous with the hummus’ creaminess….
