Roasted Beet Hummus
I love making my own hummus at home because I can make a different flavor every time! One of my favorites is a roasted beet hummus. I roast the beet until it is tender then blend it up with classic hummus ingredients and it is delicious! This is healthy too and the perfect thing to enjoy with veggies or crackers for dipping or spread on your sandwich!

- Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.

- Peel the beet and cut it up into pieces.
- Place the beet in the blender or food processor along with all other ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more water a few Tbsp at a time if too thick.
Keeps for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
