Beet Hummus

Paleo Beet Hummus is made with 5 healthy ingredients. To make this colorful veggie dip you’ll need roasted beets, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and salt. Traditional hummus is typically made with chickpeas, a legume that is not paleo. This hummus recipe uses beets instead of chickpeas, so it is the perfect paleo dip for parties and picnics. I also like to think of this Paleo Beet Hummus as a beet tahini. We serve Paleo Beet Hummus with my Salt & Pepper Crackers or veggie sticks.

When it comes to beets, I find that many people have a love-hate relationship with them. In general, they either love them or hate them. Me? I am a beet lover. I think they’re absolutely beautiful. I adore the color of beets and enjoy their sweet, earthy taste. My husband on the other hand, does not share my love of this little root vegetable. This comment from Jerry on my How to Roast Beets post sums up my husband’s perspective:

“From a man’s point of view – beets taste like dirt and there’s no disguising this fact!”

Thank you Jerry, my husband could not have said it better himself ?. So, all you beet haters, look away from this beet recipe, and head on over to my easy Paleo Beet Cake recipe. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with this pretty purple cake. My husband certainly was.

  1. I’m excited to try this. I like how you were honest about your source, not taking credit. :) Wish me luck!

  2. Wow I never would have thought to add beets to hummus! genius! I have an internal love-hate relationship with beets but sometimes I get a craving I have to satisfy and I think this just might do the trick!

  3. I have been staring at this recipe for a few months and keep forgetting to roast beets. Today I thought, “I can’t wait any longer!” and made it with raw beets in the Vita-mix. Amazing!

  4. I’m a hummus fanatic. And yet I’ve never made anything like this. Well, when I can get my farmer’s market beets, that will definitely change. Great recipe!

  5. Love it! I tried it with 1/2 Tahiti and 1/2 almond butter and it was super yummy. I can’t eat garbanzo beans but I love hummus so I am so stoked to find a new way to make it.

  6. How very interesting. I love raw beets, but haven’t enjoyed them cooked. Traditional hummus is a bit heavy for me, but I think subbing the chickpeas with beets just might be the perfect option.

  7. This looks wonderful! One of my favorite tapas places in NY serves a beet hummus that I think is just like this and I’m addicted! I get a huge tub of it to go every time I go to the city, but now I might have to make it myself! I usually eat it spooned into endive leaves – it makes a really beautiful hors d’oeuvre. Thanks!!
