In my family, we LOVE hummus! So, I love to experiment in the kitchen with different recipes for hummus. I have been wanting to make roasted beet hummus for quite some time, and I’m thrilled with how this tastes. My daughter loves it too so it’s a great way to get beets into her diet. Find the recipe at the bottom of the post.

One of the key steps to creating a creamy smooth hummus is to take the time to shell the chickpeas. Trust me on this one. You’ll be amazed at the difference!

The colour of this hummus is so intense so it also makes a beautiful dip to add to any event that you’re hosting. We recently held a Summer Soirée at my studio and to serve the hummus, I used individual ceramic mini cups which worked really well.
