Beet Hummus is a great variation that’s perfect with chips, pita bread or inside your favorite wrap. Include it in your next meze platter.
I rarely buy hummus outside – especially plain hummus. I find the tahini in plain chickpea hummus comes across too strong. For this reason, I usually opt for the flavored hummus varieties instead of plain hummus. Even when I go to one of my favorite places to eat in NYC – Hummus & Pita Co., I always opt for the flavored hummus even if I do have to pay an extra $.
With the strong beet flavor in this hummus, the tahini is barely a footnote. Now if you are one of those that love the flavor of tahini, feel free to add more according to your preference. You might also want to try my Allergen Free Spinach Harissa Hummus, which does not have any tahini at all, but will still go great with Pita Bread.
Beets are full of so many nutrients, so if you are not a beet fan – try this hummus. With all the other flavors going on, you might just grow to like beets in this way!
Hummus is such a great condiment to use in sandwiches or as a dip. The varieties of endless. Here are just some ideas to go crazy with your hummus flavors.
- Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
- Carrot Hummus
- Spinach Hummus
- Jalapeno Hummus
- Broccoli Hummus
