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.
