Beet Moutabel - Vegan Beet Hummus Recipe

This is adapted from something we had at a local Middle Eastern eatery recently. It's a very similar sort of recipe to hummus, but it replaces the chickpea with braised beets. This is a great dip to put out for parties, and even people who aren't big beet fans may love this. The colour is just stunning. The beets combined with the light tahini make for this unbelievable magenta colour. You can garnish this with parsley or chives, and it's best served with either warm pita, pita chips, or tortilla chips.

You can change the flavour profile a little by switching up what you braise the beets with. Replace the garlic with shallots, add some cinnamon or clove, lots of fine little alterations you can make. You can also roast the garlic you add to the recipe to reduce its sharpness, but we don't recommend using the garlic that you braised the beets with, because it was pretty flavourless after all that cooking in water.

I make borscht sometimes. But that's it (honestly, beets are so messy!) But I've been meaning to cook some more and this looks interesting.

3. Messy indeed!

After working with beets, your cutting board always looks like a crime scene!

But they're so good!

4. My pleasure!

And this one is delicious. I hope you'll enjoy it. It went very well with pita chips or tortilla chips.
