Beautiful Beet Hummus
Hummus is a delightful appetizer or side dish, full of plant protein and flavor. It’s filling yet low in calories, with each serving providing about 8 grams of protein. This particular version has no added oil, and boasts extra nutritional value in the form of beets.
Beets are a true superfood, known to lower your blood pressure, boost endurance, increase energy, and lower inflammation. Beets are high in antioxidants, purify the blood, protect your heart and brain, plus they’re loaded with fiber.
Whether you pick golden or red beets, the nutritional benefits are the same. If the red “dye” from beets makes you nervous because it colors your hands and cutting board, albeit temporarily, you can always opt for the golden option.
In this particular recipe the red beet makes the hummus very pretty, so if you are serving for guests or feel your family may just be more inclined to try a beautiful pinky-red hummus, go with the red beet.
