Beet Hummus Recipe

If you’ve ever heard this song by Billy Kenny, you will totally understand why eating beets will never be the same. Ever since I first heard this song at Dirtybird Campout, I have never eaten beets the same.  They are by far one of the most antioxidant-rich foods, given its vibrant color! Beets are a staple for me especially I head into a festival because of their immune boosting benefits and ability to help detoxify your liver. Your body will be thanking you be the end of the weekend for all those beets (and beats) consumed.

This beet hummus is simple, hearty and can be added to just about anything! I love wrapping it up along with some fresh veggies in a rainbow collard leaf or slathered on toast. Short on time? Dip fresh carrots, cucumbers or crackers in it.
