Beets for Hummus


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.



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


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.
