Beets are my favorite! This hasn’t always been the case, but I have grown especially fond of beets. Raw, steamed, roasted, shredded; any way you slice ’em, I will eat them. In our local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes, we get plenty of beets. So, we decided to give our standard hummus a twist; we peeled some small, sweet beets, grabbed some balsamic vinegar, and made this earthy, oil free Beet & Balsamic Hummus. We opt for an oil-free version to keep this delicious snack as low fat as possible. The combination of the lemon, balsamic vinegar, and beets, created a balanced flavor. Perfect for snacking! We served it with veggies, crostini, and crackers. This Beet & Balsamic Hummus makes an excellent snack or a great sandwich spread. Grab some small sweet beets and give it a whirl (see what I did there?).
The Key is in the Processing!
