Beet Hummus

Two things the girl and I love: beets, and hummus. What could be better than putting them together?! Making your own hummus is pretty simple, and this recipe just uses beets instead of the normal chickpeas.

We used this recipe as a base for our beet hummus and made a few tweaks. Instead of regular black pepper, we used a pinch of smoked pepper for another flavor dimension. (It basically makes anything taste like it's been grilled.) Also, since we didn't have enough lemons, we used the zest from one lime as well.

Cooking the beets is what takes the longest in this whole process, but it's totally worth it. Give this recipe a shot the next time you are having a get-together - the color alone will have people talking about it!
