As well, it is a 100% Kids Friendly hummus variation! It has all what kids prefer: attractive color, creamy texture and really nice taste. Great to be used as spread or dip for delicious sandwiches, wraps, nachos or even as a stand alone dish.

    You made my mouth water with the image at the end of the post! THANKS so much for this recipe! We eat a LOT of hummus, and I JUST picked up a huge bag of beets from the local market! Making this tonight!

      Glad to post it just in time. Beets are seasonal in September – October, so why not to have and extra recipe idea involving this nutritious plant?!

    This looks delicious! It’s technically not “hummus”, since it doesn’t have any tahini, but it probably has a similar taste because of the beans. Will definitely try it, thanks for sharing!

    I buy the white bean hummus all the time. I have eaten the red beet hummus. That is not that good. I like the white bean one so much better. I just can’t get my mouth to adjust to beets for a dip.

    This looks delicious and so colourful. Why only kids ? I think adults are going to love this hummus too, including me.

    That looks so good! My toddlers are sooo picky. One is currently going through a phase where she will only eat dry foods so no fruit or anything that’s cold. I’m hoping this only lasts another week or so. Would love to try your recipe one day.

      It worth giving a try as it is packed with precious nutritious elements. For example beets are great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate and vitamin C. Beets also contain nitrates and pigments that may help lower blood pressure and improve athletic performance. And beans contain plenty of dietary fiber and a very good source of both folate and manganese. They are also a good source of many minerals including copper, phosphorus, magnesium and iron.
