We love this roasted beet hummus with crackers, raw vegetables, vegan cheese platters, or just fresh pita bread.

Beetroot: Why is the beetroot hummus recipe so special? Well, it’s full of earthy flavor with a beautiful pink color to liven any dining table! When choosing a beet, look out for one rich in color and avoid dry and bluish looking ones.
Chickpeas: Hummus is all about chickpeas. Either canned or homemade is fine, but for ease and speed go for canned. When you drain chickpeas, be sure to keep the water from the can. It’s called Aquafaba. You can make vegan whipped cream for topping on sweets and fruits. Find out more about the secret of this magical chickpea water.
Tahini Paste: Hummus is soo good with tahini, and beetroot hummus is no exception. Is hummus better without tahini or not? I’ve tried both and I like it with Tahini but you can experiment too. What can you use instead of tahini? If you really do not have tahini, try peanut butter or reflex oil.
Garlic and Lemon: Who cannot like this combination for hummus? Add freshly ground black paper and Sea Salt. It gives a punch of flavor.
Variations: Cumin, coriander, and pine nuts can be optional. I’ve found paprika and oregano work well.
Equipments: Blender or Mixer and Spatular.
How to Make Beet Hummus
Keep beetroot skin on, and coat them with olive oil. Wrap the beetroot tightly with a foil. After you baked it, put it aside and let it cool. I like to peel the skin by hand as it maintains the rich flavor close to the skin but you can use a peeler if you prefer.
Aquafaba is one of the secrets of this recipe. It keeps beet hummus creamy and extra smooth. Add it as a replacement for water.
Garnish and Serve!
