Beets for Hummus

IMG_6378

Couldn’t believe that healthy can be this delicious. Some people put tahini but mine has none and for my preference I like it that way but still a win-win accomplishment, this is plant-based food again not animal based artery clogging foods. So lets gather up our ingredients and start preparing it right away but you need a Vitamix, or a blender and I couldn’t find my Vitamix juicer and used my ever dependable, old food processor.

INGREDIENTS;

1 can chick peas (washed/drained)

1 packet cooked beets (can get it from Costco or Trader Joe’s

1 Tbsp. Sesame oil ( you can add 2-3 if you want it oily)

1 tsp. lemon or lime juice

1/8 tsp. Himalayan pink salt

2 huge cloves garlic (crushed via garlic crusher)

generous pinch of cayenne pepper

PROCEDURE:

1. Finely chop the beets and reserve the red juice in the packet and  mix with all the ingredients in a food processor except the sesame oil, once satisfied with the taste and the color, taste and gradually add the sesame oil while the processor is running. Serve in a clear, white mason jar with pita bread. Eat during supper time with freshly brewed, low caffeine-level Tazo Flavored organic bramblewine.

Remember the old wise saying, ‘For breakfast, eat like a king, for lunch, eat like a cashed-poor student and eat like a pauper during supper.

As usual, hubby didn’t like it while I am almost licking it from its container (Sorry for the choice of words). My 2 sons will definitely like it too.

As usual, trying to eat healthy, plant-based foods.

Masarap!
