Meatless Monday: Beet Hummus

How is it Monday already?!  The weekends sure do fly by!  Did you watch the Emmys last night?  My favorite look was definitely Kerry Washington in her glittery gorgeousness!  

But, back to the food.  Today I have a colorful, healthy, and delicious beet hummus recipe for you.  I did not add chickpeas to the recipe, but if you wanted to, you can decrease the cooked beets to 1 cup and add 1 cup of chickpeas.  I almost ate the entire bowl, this recipe was that good!  Give it a try and let me know how you like it! 

2 Cups Cooked Beets

(If you need a refresher on how to cook beets, see THIS post)

2 TBSP Sesame Seeds (or 2 TBSP tahini)

1 TBSP EVOO

Juice of 1/2 Lemon

1 TSP Lemon Zest

1 Clove Garlic
