Tips for making Easy Beet Hummus

If you don't have tahini on hand, you can replace it with another nut butter.

Use dried chickpeas for this recipe as they give a better flavor than canned ones. Don't forget to soak chickpeas before using them.

If you want to leave out chickpeas, you can try adding beans.

For an even healthier beet hummus, you can swap the ricotta cheese for Greek yogurt or a soft goat cheese.

How to make hummus with beets

Preheat oven to 425°F/200°C/gas mark 7.

Tightly wrap beets in foil and roast for about 60-70 minutes until the tines of a fork slide easily into the center of beet. Let them sit until cool enough to handle.

Meanwhile, add the chickpeas in a food processor.

Stir in the tahini.

Add the lemon juice.

Add the ricotta cheese.

Add the garlic, salt, pepper, and coriander.

Combine until smooth.

Using a paper towel, gently rub beets to remove the skin. Trim root ends and cut beet into pieces, then add to food processor.

Stir for 2 minutes until smooth. Season with salt, if it is necessary.

Transfer hummus to a shallow bowl. Top with mint and poppy seeds and drizzle with oil. Serve and enjoy!
