paleo beet hummus

Not all of us can eat beans… so I created this bean-free (paleo!) hummus. It’s super easy and delicious. Just give yourself enough time to soak your walnuts and roast your beets. In the picture, it’s layered with avocado and some seeds in an endive boat,  but you can eat it any way you would eat hummus.


Ingredients

2 large red beets

1 cup raw walnuts

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup tahini

juice from ½ lemon

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

½ teaspoon cumin

¾ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper


The night before

  1. Soak your walnuts overnight in water in the refrigerator.
  2. Roast or boil your beets until a fork will pierce through the middle. Let them cool and then peel them.

The day of…

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Serve in endive boats topped with avocado, sunflower seeds and a drizzle of olive oil.
