The only thing we love more than hummus? Hummus that’s bright pink, obviously. Thanks to a genius addition of beets, this darling snack is getting a major (and surprisingly easy) upgrade.


4 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed

⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium beet—cooked, peeled and chopped

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons tahini

1 garlic clove, smashed

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Pita chips, tortilla chips, crackers or chopped vegetables, as desired for dipping


1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the chickpeas, olive oil, beet, lemon juice, tahini and garlic.

2. Puree until smooth; season with salt and pepper.

3. Serve with your choice of chips, crackers and veggies.
