Bold Beet Hummus With Pomegranate

What You'll Need


1 medium beet, steamed and diced

½ lemon, juiced

2 Tbsp pomegranate molasses (optional)

½ tsp sea salt (optional)

½ tsp ground coriander

¼ tsp ground cloves

1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

¼ cup tahini

2-4 cloves garlic

1 tsp ground cumin

½ tsp smoked paprika


How to Make It


1 Add beets, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses, a pinch of salt, ground coriander, and ground cloves to a food processor and blend until a smooth puree forms.

2 Remove 2 Tbsp of beet puree from the food processor and set aside. Add chickpeas, tahini, garlic, ground cumin, and smoked paprika to the food processor and blend for about five minutes, or until hummus is mostly smooth.

3 Add hummus to a serving bowl and create a swirl design with the beet puree that was reserved.
