BEET HUMMUS (it's delish I promise!)

For some reason, I think when people hear "beets",  they put it right there with kale and sprouts, automatically put in the "it's good for you but not so good tasting" food category. Would you agree?

Well, my friends, I will say that if you do think this way, perhaps this simple hummus recipe will change your mind!?!  I am a huge fan of beets, especially my grandmas canned beets (I could eat a whole jar of them in about five minutes--sprinkle a little salt on em and ooooh baby!). I've never really tried making anything with beets, but I bought a big package of steamed beets at costco...so I figured I'd give this hummus recipe a whirl! I am so glad I did...it's such a easy, healthy treat!

Don't ya just LOVE the beautiful, rich color of beets! Just don't get the juice on your clothes (they're stainers thats for sure!)
