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!

Spicy Carrot Fries

When it comes to fries, potato and sweet potato are common, but carrots also make really good fries!  I like to toss them with spices, roast until they are sweet and tender and then serve them with hummus for dipping. It is so good, and carrots are packed with nutrients and fiber!

Crispy Oven Fried Broccoli

I am a big fan of fried cauliflower, so I thought why not try broccoli as well!  However, I like to make it healthier than frying it in a bunch of oil, so I bake mine instead and it still comes out nice and crispy!  I serve it here with a lemon tahini dipping sauce and it is so delicious!  Not only that, you get your daily fiber and a satisfying snack all in one!
