Our Favorite Roasted Beet Hummus Recipe
Pita chips and carrot sticks are the usual sidekicks to hummus, but we like to live it up and eat ours with corn chips. Specifically, we love this roasted beet hummus with Pipcorn Truffle Heirloom Corn Dippers.
First of all, the color. We didn’t think it was possible to achieve such a lovely shade of pink without food dyes. It’s truly a feast for the eyes. And then there’s the flavor. The deliciously earthy flavor of beets, tahini and chickpeas combine into something magical with just a few pulses of the food processor. Paired with savory Truffle Heirloom Corn Dippers, this is a hummus worthy of both packed lunches and parties.
