  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F
2. Rinse the beets. Pierce them a few times with a fork, place in a small, greased baking dish, and cover with aluminum foil.
3. Roast until tender, about 45 to 60 minutes. Set aside to cool.
4. While the beets roast, add the ingredients for the hummus, from the chickpeas to the paprika into the bowl of a food processor. Don’t blend yet. Set aside.
5. When the beets are cool enough to handle, peel them. Dice the beets and add to the food processor.
6. Puree until a smooth (or chunky, if you prefer) puree forms. You may need to add a tablespoon or two of olive oil to thin.
7. Serve in a wide, shallow bowl, with ingredients for the garnish.
