We are starting our week off with a healthy + pretty pink hummus! Bright pink hummus… you know that caught our eye! We have been seeing this beet hummus everywhere, and needed to see what the craze was all about! Oh boy, oh boy were we happy we tried it out… Team beet hummus all the way.
Did you know that beets are all kinds of good for you?!?!
High in potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, beta-cyanine; folic acid – WOAH!
A natural detoxifier, cleansing the liver and blood. Bonus, can even help to prevent certain forms of cancer
Beets are nature’s Viagra. Beets contain high amounts of boron, which is related to the production of human sex hormones. Bow…chickpea…wow…wow.. get it? HAHA! They also contain betaine, which is used in treatments for depression, so overall making you happy!
2 medium Beets
1 can Chickpeas
2 tbsp Tahine (Tahine is a sesame seeds paste)
Juice of 1 Lemon (feel free to add more)
3 Garlic crushed garlic cloves
2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 sprigs fresh Thyme
1 Bay leaf
Whole Sea Salt Flakes

How perfect is that bright pink color! So good!
Serve with your favorite dipping vegetables, fruit, and crackers. I love to pick bright colors to have one pretty eye catching platter. Add micro greens and edible flowers for that pretty detail.
