 Hello & Happy Monday!!

 

 

 

In the midst of my beet epidemic a few weeks ago, I explored beet soup, beet burgers, and wanted to create a recipe where beets were the foundation, but a recipe that called for less steps and less ingredients. 

 


I’ve always been a HUGE fan of hummus. Its flavorful, healthy, affordable, and can be enjoyed with fresh veggies thus increasing the nutrients.

What many don’t realize is, its SUPER easy to make yourself and tastes 394834983 times better. Sure, buying it on sale at the store is more efficient.. but its processed and packaged and could cost you less to make it yourself.

My favorite thing to do with hummus is to get creative! You can throw in a multitude of herbs and veggies to enhance the flavor and color (I add kale, spinach, and avocado a lot). Having a current obsession for beets I felt it was a perfect opportunity to combine my love for hummus and beets to achieve a recipe that not only has added nutrients, but offered a beautiful bright and bold color. 

 

 This my friends, is the easiest recipe that is sure to be a crowd pleaser..
