Ingredients

  • 2 medium beet

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.

  • Remove the beets from the oven and slice the tail and stem off the beets. 
  • Add the chickpeas, chickpea liquid, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and beets to a Vitamix or other high-powered blender. Use the tamper and blend for one minute or until smooth and creamy.
