While we were on our regular grocery shopping trip, I had a craving for a good dip.
I just wanted to cut up a bunch of vegetables and dip them into something yummy… So I started looking through what they had on their dip and spread shelf.
I’m currently on a gluten, dairy & egg-free diet (Oh and some beans are out for me, too… sad.), and many pre-made dips had one or more ingredients I can’t have.
Yes, I could eat chickpea hummus, but that’s my typical dip of choice, and I wanted to try something new.
And there it was, I saw this gorgeous, creamy, magenta goodness in an 8 oz. tub on the shelf.
And that’s how I met Beet & Walnut Hummus.
Delighted, I picked up the container and read the label closely. And, congratulations! It was made with everything I could eat!
When I was reading the label, I also noticed that the ingredients were pretty much identical to regular hummus (except for the beets and walnut part).
And then I thought, hmmm, I could probably make that at home!
So I did!
I just modified the simple chickpea hummus recipe to create this Beet & Walnut hummus. It’s super easy to make and oh so delectable.
It tastes very much like regular chickpea hummus, but the beets add the slight earthiness, and it’s surprisingly sweet, too.
Enjoy with veggies, crackers, and anything else you’d eat with the regular hummus!
