Soft, sweet and earthy, roasted beets make for a vivid pink dip that's a fun take on hummus. If you are pressed for time, use the preroasted beets available in many supermarket produce sections instead of roasting your own.

  • 12 ounces beets, scrubbed
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons tahini

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a 9-inch-square baking dish, brush the beets with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover the dish tightly with foil, and bake for about 1 hour or until the beets are tender. Let the beets cool, then peel and roughly chop.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the garlic until minced. Add the chopped beets, tahini, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons water and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Process until smooth. Season the beet hummus with salt and pepper and serve.
