Beet Hummus {CtBF}

I love hummus and I love beets, so I was intrigued by this week’s Cook the Book Fridays recipe for Beet Hummus, this shocking pink dip.  The hummus couldn’t be easier to make which was perfect since I’m fighting a cold and have barely left the house in days.

All the ingredients are pureed in the food processor.  The most time-consuming task was roasting a beet.  The usual suspects in hummus were part of the ingredient list (garlic, lemon, chickpeas, and tahini), but to be honest, the beet overpowered it all.  While the color is fun, I found the flavor to be cloyingly sweet.  I forgot to sprinkle the top with some za’atar, which might have changing the mix.

All in all, in the future, I’ll take my hummus and beets separately, please.
