How To Make Creamy Beet Hummus

At snack time or dinner, our families are happier when there’s some hummus among us! This dynamic dip can be classy or casual — it all depends on how you serve it. It’s both a versatile dip and a hearty spread. We love just about any kind of hummus, but beet hummus boasts a unique flavor and fun color that makes it a joy to eat.

One of the best things about hummus is that it’s simple to make yourself. Using a food processor or blender, you can make your own hummus that’s better than what you’ll find at the store.

For this recipe, start by chopping the beets into small pieces. We recommend cutting them into one-inch cubes to make them easier to blend. Fresh beets are difficult to blend, though, so boil them in just a little bit of water to soften them up. This helps you achieve an irresistible creamy texture in your beet hummus.
