Beet & White Bean Hummus

When it comes to healthy snacks, what can compete with bean dip or hummus as stalwart standbys? Alongside crunchy fresh veggies, not much. Unless you add a sophisticated secret ingredient that will turn a back-of-the-pantry can of white beans into a showstopper. Our Beet & White Bean Hummus brings bold, bright magenta to the table, with a sweet earthiness that only roasted beets can deliver. Kick up your snacks and at-home appetizers with this fresh, vibrant, protein-rich combo. Roasted beets and zesty lemon make our Beet & White Bean Hummus a spectacular spread, no matter what you serve it on (or with!). It’s hard not to smile at the pop of colour this recipe will add to your day.

Ingredients:

For the Beet & White Bean Hummus:

  • 2 medium beets
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 can (398ml/14 oz) white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon mild nut butter (we used cashew)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To serve as a sandwich:

instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Quarter beets and toss with olive oil. Bake on a cookie sheet until tender, approximately 30 minutes. Allow roasted beets to cool before removing skin.
  2. Transfer peeled roasted beets to the bowl of a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. Transfer to a storage container (keeps in the refrigerator for up to 5 days).
  3. To serve, spread on toasted slices of your favourite Silver Hills Sprouted Power™ bread, or turn it into a sandwich! We love it on our Multigrain bread, topped with creamy slices of avocado, and fresh crunchy sprouts. (But it’s equally delicious no matter how you enjoy it!)
