Square Meal Round table
The affinity for this dip rests primarily in its luscious color! Who can resist that shade of fuchsia as we certainly eat with our eyes! Beets are a true superfood and a wonderful way to add sweetness to any dish, that aforementioned color, and a ton of vitamin c, fiber, potassium and manganese. Using them in hummus gives a nice twist to a mediterranean classic.
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed
2 garlic cloves
1 large red beet, roasted, peeled and cooled*
1 tsp of salt
2 tablespoons tahini
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1 tsp Zaatar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with chips, pita or veggies.
*to roast beets, remove stems and leaves and wrap in tin foil. Place in 400 degree oven and roast until easily pierced with a knife. Rub off skin and cool.
A square meal is satisfying, nourishing, complete.
A round table includes all.
