Beet Hummus with fresh vegetables and Pita

Ingredients

  • Beets (1/2lb) Cooked, Peeled, Cubed

  • 5 tbsp lemon juice

  • 2 tbsp tahini sesame seed paste

  • 1 small chopped garlic clove

  • 1 tbsp ground cumin

  • lemon zest from 2 lemons

  • pinch salt and fresh ground pepper

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until smooth. Chill and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Freeze for longer storage.



*To cook the beets, cut off the tops, scrub the roots clean, and put them in a covered dish with 1/4 inch water. You can also roast them by coating them with oil and placing them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake at 375 until easily penetrated with a knife or fork. For stovetop cooking, cover beets with water in a saucepan and simmer until tender, about 1/2 hour. Peel once they have cooled.


Serve with pita chips, fresh pita bread, or enjoy with sliced cucumbers or lemon cucumbers for extra fresh crunch.
