I love roasted beets. They have a sweet & earthy flavor that is like candy to me!
Hummus can be so vetsatile. It is traditionally eaten with pita but I like mine as a vegetable dip or as a sandwich spread!
Original recipe from http://www.bellalimento.com
Recipe makes 10 servings
1 serving = 2 tbsp = 2 weight watchers points+
3 weight watchers smart points
2-3 beets (I used 3 small ones)
1 tbsp + 1/4 cup olive oil divided
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp tahini
Zest & juice of 1 lemon
Salt & pepper to taste
Peel your beets & rub with 1 tbsp olive oil. I used 1 tsp on each. Wrap in foil. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45-60 minutes or until they feel a bit soft through the foil.
Once the beets are cool enough to handle remove the foil & place in a food processor. Pulse until pureed.
Add remaining ingredients & blend until smooth. Refrigerate until cold.
