Five Minute Vegan Beetroot Hummus

Is it beetroot or beet? I suppose that just depends on what part of the world you’re in. Regardless, this Beetroot Hummus is the perfect snack. The pink hue is to die for, and it comes together in just five minutes!

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks. I absolutely love its versatility. This recipe could not be easier to put together and it utilizes those vacuum sealed baby beets making it come together in just FIVE minutes! Now there’s no excuse to not make your own hummus.

Why This Beetroot Hummus?

If you’re not familiar with hummus, it is a traditional dip made from chickpeas, tahini, garlic, and olive oil. Many cultures have their own recipes and styles of hummus. Some are thicker and go heavy on the tahini, while other are lighter and whipped and lean more on the tart side with the addition of lemon. Either way, hummus is a great protein filled snack!

Once you are familiar with the base ingredients for hummus, you can start playing around with additions. Beetroot hummus is the perfect example of adding in a new ingredient to a traditional recipe and making something entirely new. I adore beetroot and come Spring, I am always looking for different ways to incorporate it into my life. I mean, who could resist the bright pink hue?

Let’s Talk Ingredients

Beetroot: here I use the baby beets that are vacuum sealed in the produce section. This makes the hummus super quick and easy. Feel free to use any steamed or roasted beetroot you may have.

Chickpeas: canned chickpeas work wonderfully for this recipe. If you prefer to use your own chickpeas, all the more power to you!

Tahini: tahini is pureed roasted sesame seeds. I have made this dip with raw tahini as well as traditional. They have a different flavor profile, but both work well here.

Lemon: fresh lemon juice is key here. I don’t recommend using bottled juice.

Garlic: use as much garlic as you would like for this. I always like to add an extra clove, but that’s just me. If you don’t like raw garlic you can use a few cloves of roasted or 1/4 tsp of garlic powder.

Garnish: I absolutely adore mint and feta paired with this beetroot hummus. However you can skip either or use what you have. Parsley would be great along with vegan feta.

If you’re looking to jazz up your traditional hummus recipe or for a way to use up some extra beets, why not try this gorgeous Beetroot Hummus?
