Things can tend to get a little bit grey and boring during the fall, especially here in Vancouver (ehem… Raincouver.) Sooo, I made this pink hummus to brighten up your afternoon snack! Also everyone knows that pink is prettier, so why not… right?!
What’s in it:
- 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
- 1 large lemon
- ¼ cup tahini
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tbsp olive oil (always use extra virgin!)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp water
- ½ small cooked red beet
Combine tahini and lemon juice in your blender. Add in the olive oil, garlic, and salt. Process these ingredients until smooth. Now, take those chickpeas and add them into your blender slowly (half a can at a time.) Blend as you are adding in the chickpeas so your hummus becomes nice and smooth. Finally, add in the cooked red beet until your hummus becomes as light or dark pink as you like. And voila! All done. Serve with your favourite veggies or crackers.
Chickpeas are a great source of protein, so this pretty-in-pink snack will keep you full all afternoon long. Keep in mind chickpeas are pretty high in calories so try and not crush the entire batch in one go… haha (you will want to though, trust me!)
Hope you love the recipe! Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments below. <3
