Beet Hummus: A Colorful Twist on a Classic Favorite

Guest blog and recipe by Annie Siegfried @annie_siegfried.

Beet hummus is a delightful twist on traditional hummus. It not only tantalizes the taste buds with its rich flavor and vibrant color but also packs a punch of Just Calm to provide mood support.

Beetroot is celebrated for its earthy flavor and impressive nutritional profile. Beets are rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, including vitamin C, potassium, and manganese. Their high fiber content supports digestive health by promoting regularity and aiding in the maintenance of a healthy gut microbiome.

A staple ingredient in traditional hummus, chickpeas, provide a creamy base and a boost of plant-based protein to the beet hummus. Rich in fiber and complex carbs, chickpeas serve as prebiotics—nourishing the beneficial bacteria in the gut and supporting their growth and proliferation. This, in turn, contributes to improved digestion and overall gut health.

Tahini adds richness and depth of flavor to the beet hummus while contributing healthy fats, protein, and essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Tahini's nutrient profile supports overall health and well-being, including bone health, heart health, and nerve function.

Lemon juice and garlic lend their vibrant flavors and additional health benefits to the beet hummus. Lemon juice provides a burst of vitamin C and citric acid, which aids digestion and enhances nutrient absorption. Garlic boasts antimicrobial properties and contains compounds that support immune function and heart health.

A drizzle of olive oil further adds a luxurious texture and a dose of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats to the beet hummus. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which contribute to its numerous health benefits, including improved digestive health and reduced risk of chronic diseases.

Infusing beet hummus with Just Calm makes it a great option not only for gut health but also for mood support.

Whether enjoyed as a spread, dip, or topping, beet hummus is sure to delight your taste buds and leave you feeling nourished and satisfied. Cheers to vibrant gut health and joyful snacking!
