Sweet Beet Hummus

Spring has sprung but it’s going to be a long time before we see fresh Spring veggies at the Farmers’ Market unless our farmers are utilizing their greenhouses. Fortunately, we still have our root veggies in abundance.  I made this hummus (using this term loosely) without tahini or sesame oil but added a few cashews to compliment the beets and to lighten it up for Spring snacking.  It’s lemony and sweet……so worth the stained fingers!Beet dip 3

3 large beets, steamed and peeled

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Drizzle with olive oil and serve with pita chips or mixed raw vegetables.
