Beet Hummus: A Simple 3-Ingredient Recipe

by Stanley Currier | Mar 25, 2021

This is a super simple, delicious recipe that is fast and easy. A hit at gatherings both for the taste and for the beautiful velvet purple color!


1 medium beet, steamed or boiled, chopped into pieces
1 can chickpeas
Juice from 1/2 a lemon 
Spices: salt, pepper, pinch of cumin
Optional: fresh herbs such as dill or cilantro


Mix the steamed beet, chickpeas and lemon juice together in a blender. If the mixture doesn’t blend try adding a bit of water or (optional) olive oil. Then add the spices and top with fresh herbs. Delicious served with crackers, raw vegetables, or even mixed with pasta or on top of rice!
