Beet Hummus

Beet Hummus (Raw, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Oil Free)

Makes 3 cups.

Ingredients:

  • 2 smallish zucchini (about 2 cups chopped)
  • 2 small beets, shredded
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vineger
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1 cup tahini
  • 1 large handful basil

Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth. Adapted from Pure 2 Raw.

Astounding color, no? If you have a Vitamix or a super-duper powerful food processor, you can simply chop the beets instead of grating them. My average food processor requires some extra help in his culinary undertakings. I imagine this would pair well with some kale hummus (can’t have hummus without more hummus), and raw flax crackers. Better go whip some up right about…..now!

Local ingredients: Zucchini from Sweet Earth Organic Farm, beets from Driftless Organics, basil from my garden.
