Beetroot Hummus

by: Lexi & Beth (@superfoodrunner)

This hummus is not only gorgeous, but healthier than traditional hummus, and would be a great recovery food with some fresh veggies after a hard workout due to the nice balance of carbs, protein, and healthy fats. Beetroot is incredibly healthy for circulation and heart health due to its high concentration of dietary nitrates, which help to promote the production of Nitric Oxide, which is a vasodilator, meaning that when it’s produced it causes blood vessels to relax and open up allowing more oxygen and nutrients to be delivered throughout the body. Beetroot is also an excellent plant source of iron. Hemp is high in protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats, and is also a rich source of chlorophyll, which is detoxifying for your system. This is a Gluten-Free, Vegan, and refined sugar-free recipe.

Funny story behind this photo…so we made this delicious beetroot hummus using @super_beets beet powder (so amazing!!), but before we could actually have any, our 2 yr old lab Cody swooped in and ate about half the bowl before we noticed ?. He then went on to eat a baked potato, a few corn husks, and to top it off for a nice “cleanse”, an entire bar of soap. He’s such a crazy guy, but we love him so much ? RECIPE: BEETROOT HUMMUS 1 15 oz can of garbanzo beans, rinse and drain well 1/4 cup of olive oil 1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste) 3 tbsp hemp seeds 1 tbsp Superbeets Original powder 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice 1-2 small garlic cloves, minced 1/2 tsp cumin 1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne, depending on how much spice you like sea salt to taste Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.  Add 1-3 tbsp water if needed for consistency of hummus.  Serve as a dip with cut up veggies or spread on toast or crackers and top with your favorite chopped vegetables. ? #hummus #beets #beetroot #hemp #baddogs #hempseeds
