Easy Beet Hummus Dip ~ Made With White Beans

Looking for a stunning appetizer to serve at a party? Beet hummus has a pretty color with a delicious taste. Plus it is loaded with plenty of nutrition. Perfect for a vegetable tray or a charcuterie board.

 A couple of months ago I attended a health conference and they served these amazing hummus products. From regular hummus to a spicy carrot hummus, there were so many different flavors. Of course, I had to try them all and my favorite flavor was the beet hummus. The taste was so amazing that I had to buy it at my grocery store. It has become my healthy impulse buy when I go shopping. While I loved the hummus made with beets, I did not like the price.

 The last time I was at the store, I decided to try and make this delicious beet hummus at home. So I bought some can beets and can white beans. Then I searched the internet for a recipe and checked the ingredients on the last container of my store-bought hummus. The recipes that I found online did not have most of the ingredients that were listed on the store-bought container so I decided to experiment in the kitchen. I was so surprised that I was able to make a homemade version that is very similar to my favorite store-bought beet hummus. 

Beet hummus is 
~ Made with plant-based ingredients
~ Allergy-Friendly
~Full of potassium
~ Great for your blood pressure
~ Loaded with protein
~ Perfect for parties
~ Loaded with nutrition
~ Easy-to-make
~ Full of fiber
~ Purple
~ The perfect dip 

Canned beets vs fresh beets

 The first time I made this beet hummus recipe I used can beets and can white beans as I did not feel like roasting beets or cooking beans. The flavor of my first attempt at making beet hummus was so delicious. Then I just had to try making my beet hummus recipe with fresh roasted beets and the flavor was so good and so similar to using can beets.

 So it is really a matter of time and preference for making the beet hummus with canned beets or fresh beets. Both types of beets still made a delicious pretty purple hummus dip.

Easy recipe for cooking fresh beets

 If you want to use fresh beets for this delicious beet hummus recipe, then I have a super easy recipe for cooking beets in the pressure cooker. The best part of roasting the beets is the pressure cooker is you don't have to peel the beets before cooking. Of course, you can also roast the beets in the oven and I included that recipe as well.

 Check out this recipe for roasting beets in the pressure cooker or instant pot. Once you make beets in the pressure cooker, you will never buy canned beets again. Roasting the beets brings out an amazing flavor and sweetness. 

How to roast beets in the oven

 I have made this beet hummus several times since I first made it will canned beets. Canned beets are a quick way to make this beet hummus but if you have the time, I highly recommend using roasted beets that you roasted in the oven. The roasted beets give this hummus a better flavor. I start with fresh beets and then use this recipe for easy roasted beets in the oven.

 My husband used to not like beets, his mom would serve him boiled beets, but when I make roasted beets in the oven he loves them. The other night I boiled beets and now I understand why my husband did not like beets. When you boil beets, all the flavor goes down the drain with the cooking water. That makes for one bland beet. Roasting the beets keeps all the flavor of the beets as you don't use water.

Beets are

+ Healthy
+ Plant-based
+ Loaded with Fiber
+ Full of potassium
+ Great for your blood pressure
+ Delicious
+ Purple
+ A healthy snack

 Beets are a healthy food and they are loaded with nutrition. Beets are also great for your blood pressure. As an athlete, I love eating beets in my smoothie as they also are known for their endurance properties. I love making high-protein beet pancakes to snack on during the day. Beets are my favorite vegetable as they taste so good and I love the purple color.

Ingredients needed for beet hummus
~ Beets
~ White beans

 Hummus is the perfect party food. So, make this easy beet hummus for your next party. Just add some cut-up raw veggies and some crackers. Make sure to make a double batch as your friends will enjoy this beet hummus. The pretty purple color will amaze them and entice them to try the hummus made with beets.
