I love Hummus. I’ve been making beet hummus for over a year now and everyone loves it. It looks pretty, tastes great. It also goes easily with bread, tacos, wraps, and crackers.

It wasn’t until yesterday when someone asked me to share the beet hummus recipe that I realized I hadn’t shared it here on my blog.  So here is my version of this simple pink hummus.

All you need is some chickpeas, sesame seeds, olive oil, beetroots, cumin, and some salt. Also, while I’ve made this recipe using boiled beetroot, one can use roasted beets.
