Roasted Beet Hummus

November 18 2019

How about a bright, gorgeous hummus to make your party festive!  This hummus is reminiscent of a beet borscht (that I refused to even try when I was a child and my Bubbe would serve it!) in color and has all the wonderful flavors of hummus:  tahini, garlic, lemon, and cumin.

Give it a try!  This pretty little dish can't help but be noticed!!
