Homemade Beet Hummus made with chickpeas, beetroot, and fresh dill is the perfect addition to your next appetizer spread!

If you’ve never heard of beet hummus, you’re missing out. It’s just as delicious as regular hummus, but the slightest bit more sweet from the addition of beets. Plus, it’s PEENK.

Hummus is great and all, but beet hummus? It’s fun. Festive. And freaking delicious. 

Homemade Beet Hummus made with chickpeas, beetroot, and fresh dill is the perfect addition to your next appetizer spread!

I’ve been putting this stuff on my daily sammich, eating it with some crunchy carrots, and sneaking spoonfuls straight out of the container. It’s so addicting.

OK on an unrelated note: I am creating my July calendar right now, and would LOVE to hear what types of recipes you’d like me to make! Do you want more basics? Grilling stuff? How much savory v sweet?

Beet Hummus
 
Author:
Serves: about 3½ cups
Ingredients
  • 2 cups beets, roughly chopped (about 2 medium of 3 small beets)
  • 1½ cups chickpeas (made at home is ideal, but canned is OK)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • black and white sesame seeds, for garnish
  • pine nuts, for garnish
  • olive oil, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Boil water in a medium pot over high heat. Add in beets and cook until slightly soft. They will be ready when you can stick a fork into the beets with little pressure. Drain and allow to cool slightly.
  2. In a food processor or blender, pulse beets until they resemble small pebbles. Add in chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, dill, and salt.
  3. Pulse mixture to desired consistency. I like my hummus thicker, but if you prefer a creamier hummus, just keep pulsing the mixture.
  4. Plate in a shallow bowl, then top with black and white sesame seeds, pine nuts, more fresh dill, and olive oil. Serve as a dip, or spread on a sandwich. The possibilities are endless!

Hi Joanne,

Thank you for the comment. Your email in your inbox was the initial post. It is not possible to change an email once it is sent to the recipient, which is why it showed up that way in your inbox. I am sorry!

Okay, Sarah, now you’ve stopped me in mid-read of this otherwise beautiful recipe…is there no where in this world where one can read something beautiful, delicious or otherwise interesting without being hit with “f…in” this or that????? Your website has appealed to me because it has (had?) class, style and fabulous recipes but I am sick to death of being assaulted by vulgar language in everyday speech and, despite those who can’t get through a sentence without it, many, MANY OF US DON’T appreciate, want or SUBSCRIBE TO IT! iF YOU CAN’T ELIMINATE IT FROM YOUR RECIPES, i’LL be ELIMINating you from my inbox…regretfully…

Hi Julie,

I understand where you are coming from, and have had other readers express the same frustration. Because of this, I have updated the recipe so it does not include the f word in it. I did not realize that this would be so offensive to so many, and I apologize for including it in my post.

Hope you continue to subscribe and enjoy future Broma Bakery content. Thank you again for your feedback.

Warmly,
Sarah

Thank you, Sarah, for making the change so quickly. Now I’m looking forward to making this but I think I’ll be simplifying the process with something like Melissa’s steamed baby beets…already cooked and ready to go!

I agree! The language certainly doesn’t bother me and shows your personality.

Thank yo for the comment, May. I’m glad to hear it doesn’t bother you!

I completely respect and understand everyone’s opinion here, and also agree with your decision to change what you had written as a result – BUT I want you to know I love your sass, and don’t think it detracts from your blog or beautiful style.

That being said, this hummus looks bomb af, and I would love some milkshake or frozen drank recipes for the summer months!

Thank you Sarah. I really appreciate the feedback. I think ultimately it is a generational difference, and so out of respect to all of my readers I didn’t mind changing it. But I love that you love my sass, and I do believe it’s one thing that makes this blog lively. So I will find other ways to incorporate it without the use of the f word 🙂

I could easily make a meal out of this hummus – that color is everything!!

This is my go to recipe — for get togethers with family/friends — or just to have at home. Beautiful to the eye and the flavor is perfect.
Sara, you are amazing! Thank you for your website. I have several “keeper” recipes.
