RED BEET HUMMUS

This beautiful and delicious red beet hummus, has an incredible color! and the almond milk gives a lot of creaminess…

Don´t be afraid to use beetroot to make hummus, it doesn´t have much taste to beet, it just brings a nice sweet taste in contrast with the garlic and the cumin to this red beet hummus, it is just so delicious!

This roasted beet hummus is perfect to have it as appetizer or as a mid-afternoon snack, if you keep it in an airtight container, it will last about 4 days.
