Pink Hummus Recipe
You’ve asked for it, so today I am sharing my pink hummus recipe with you!
To be honest, I never really follow a recipe (truth’s out!). I’m generally bad at following instructions and I just tend to throw ingredients together (it is a hit and miss sometimes...). The recipe I’ve shared below is the results of many years of experimentation and ‘intuitive’ ingredient mixing. Fortunately, hummus is pretty fool proof and the recipe I’m sharing with you today will give you an incredibly tasty end product.
I love pink hummus because the colour is so beautiful, it’s a great way to sneak in a highly nutritious vegetable that is otherwise not very popular and pink hummus is a always a crowd pleaser.
Hummus, a perfect food
I kid you not, I could eat hummus every day. It’s so tasty, there are so many different ways of preparing and eating it, I doubt that I would ever get bored!
On top of that, when eating hummus, I know I am getting a perfectly balanced snack (or meal, depending on how much I eat…). Here’s why:
Beet these benefits
The red pigments in beets, betalains, are responsible for their high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
I personally love beets because they support our liver’s detoxification process, specifically the Phase 2 detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins from Phase I are bound to other molecules so they can be removed from the body (sayonara!).
Beets are also known to help cleanse the blood of toxins, heavy metals, and other waste products.
Last but not least, the high fiber content in beets helps cleanse the digestive tract of waste and toxins while restoring healthy and regular bowel movements.
Alright, now to the real reason why we are all here:
Pink Hummus Recipe
For best results, use a food processor. I’ve made it in my Vitamix as well, any high-speed blender will work!
Serve pink hummus with carrots, cucumber, peppers, on crackers or spread on bread.
If the beet flavour is too overpowering for you, don’t give up! Try adding a roasted beet next time.
Play around with the ingredients and adjust the portions as you see fit! Nothing is set in stone :)
Enjoy your pink hummus and let me know how it turned out!
In health & happiness,
