This surprising combination of flavors is a pairing that works well.

In this Pickled Beet Hummus recipe, the natural sweetness and earthy flavor of beets is brightened with fresh lemon juice and garlic. Cannellini beans provide a great canvas/backdrop flavor. Tahini, a traditional hummus ingredient, adds creamy texture and subtle bitter nuttiness to balance out the sweetness of beets. And za’atar adds complexity.

The beauty of this recipe is that it comes together for a lovely melding of flavors and it whips up in just 10 minutes!

Beetroot Hummus

Hummus is already a healthy snack and appetizer choice, but adding beets to hummus is a great way to bump up the nutrition even more! Beets are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and are thought to have a variety of health benefits (read up on the details on Healthline and Health). The earthy sweetness of beets is a great pairing with beans in a hummus recipe.

What is Beetroot?

Beetroot refers to the taproot part of a beet plant; here in the U.S. we usually just call beetroot “beets”. This term differentiates the root from beet greens, which are also edible.

Surprisingly, beet greens are delicious, especially in recipes like Beet Greens Pasta with Walnuts and Parmesan Cheese.
