Instructions
  1. To begin, preheat your oven to 400F.
  2. Cut the ends off of the beets. You could actually peel the beets now, which I would recommend {I didn’t pull the skin off until they cooled which made it difficult to remove, at least for me. Usually it’s simple}.
  3. Coat the beets in olive oil and wrap in tin foil. Yes I know you shouldn’t heat aluminum foil and I usually don’t. Maybe you could roast the whole beet on parchment paper and it would work the same. I haven’t attempted. Since I rarely make this but when I do, I’ve covered in foil. Place in the oven and Bake 45 minutes- 1 hour, depending on your oven and the size of the beets. You could also put them in a covered dish with about 1/4-inch of water in a 375°F oven, and cook until tender to pierce with a fork. They won’t be roasted though.
  4. Remove from oven. Unwrap and let it cool until warm to the touch.
  5. Next, chop the beet and add it to a food processor. Pulse the best just enough to get little broken up pieces.
  6. Then, add in the drained and rinsed chickpeas, himalayan salt and black pepper, lemon juice from 1 lemon, garlic and the tahini {not pictured}. Process the ingredients to combine. As the mixture is processing, pour in the olive oil while the machine is running. Stop and scrape the sides and pulse more if needed.
  7. Serve on toast with some hempseeds for a quick and nutritious snack. You could also serve it with some pita chips or sliced pita bread.
  8. Refrigerate in a covered bowl for up to a week. Mix the beet hummus before each use.
