This time I would like to share with you how to make beet hummus.
I am trying different recipes where I can add beets and so far this one is my favorite.
I am not a huge fan of being in the kitchen for too long. I like to get in the kitchen and find snacks that are quick and healthy. I have realized that prepping your food is the best thing to do if you want to eat healthy.

1/2 lb cooked beet root
3 cups cooked and drained chickpeas (save the liquid in the fridge)
4-5 tablespoon lime juice
3/4 cup chickpeas liquid
2 tablespoons tahini
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
Hummus is a healthy and a convenient food which can be incorporated with almost any meal. Hummus is a good source of protein. The amino acids present in hummus help elevate your mood and help you get better sleep. The omega-3 fatty acids present in hummus are good for your skin and can stimulate hair growth.
1. Cook your beetroots. You can bake, boil, or steam them. I decided to steam and slice them.
2. Pour the chickpeas liquid, lemon juice, chickpeas, beets and tahini into your blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. If you see that your mixture is too thick just add more chickpeas liquid.
3. Add salt, cumin, garlic blend and you are set!!
4. Pour mixture into a bowl and drizzle it with extra virgen olive oil.
