This hummus isn’t just pretty, it makes you pretty!

Beets are a very beautifying food for a number of reasons. A member of the same family of veggies as spinach and chard, they pack a very high concentration of vitamins and minerals and are very helpful for helping the body to detoxify naturally.

  • High in folate (especially important for mamas-to-be)
  • High in the antioxidant vitamins A + C (mega important for glowing skin)
  • High in fibre (important for healthy digestion)
  • And, they help to thin the bile which is important for detoxification!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large beet, roasted
  • 2 garlic cloves, roasted
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 (15oz) can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained (I use Eden Organics)
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • Fresh or dried thyme for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375′
  2. Wash and peel the beets then quarter them and place on a baking tray
  3. Peel the garlic clove and place on baking tray
  4. Drizzle beets and garlic with olive or coconut oil and bake for 45-60 minutes until beets can be easily be pierced with a knife
  5. Remove the beets and let cool
  6. Add the beets to a food processor and blend well
  7. Add the garlic, tahini, lemon juice, sea salt and chickpeas and blend again
  8. Add the olive oil and blend again
  9. Enjoy!
