My family loves pizza, and this one sure is completely different take on a pizza. Pizza comes in many shapes and forms, and everyone has their favorite. To my surprise, my family asks more and more for hummus pizza. You can add any topping […]
Easy, delicious, and perfect for lazy weekend nights!
Over the weekends I got to think of the recipes that I can make fast because my kids are home and all they ask is: “where is the food, ma?” Sometimes, I feel like they have a hole in their belly.
I guess it is just a part of growing up. Usually, I would make delicious slow-cooked meals during the work/school days, when the kids are in school and I can actually take my time cooking. Pizza is amazing during our family movie night or Sunday football. My family loved this one and already asked for more. Success!
I was asked if I want to try “HOPE” hummus, and I couldn’t wait to try it. My oldest son and I love hummus.
My daughter is slowly becoming a fan as well. We are still trying to convince my youngest one to try, so far no luck. The boy is really hard to negotiate. This is not a sponsored post, but I wanted to let you know how delicious this HOPE hummus was.
They have many flavors, and my Publix only carries these 5, which I absolutely adored. My favorite though was jalapeno-cilantro and Thia coconut curry, although original recipe, kale pesto, and spicy avocado were not bad at all, however, those two flavors that I really loved hit the spot in right places.

Pizza Dough RECIPE You may pick any cheese that you wish, I just think this combo one works very well with pizza toppings. You may use frozen florets just make sure to pat dry so you don't end up with excess water, you can defrost it instead of blanching.

Would you look at that hummus color? Every time I make it, I am amazed at how perfect it looks.
You already know that I love beets, and in combination with tahini, garlic, chickpeas, and lemon this makes an amazing dip. I will serve it even for Thanksgiving, along with some other delicious dips. You can prepare it a day before and refrigerate it.
I will share more hummus recipes in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned! Why buy it when you can make your own, even more, delicious than a store bought.
You can also prepare your own chickpeas just by soaking and then cooking them, but for this one, I used Organic chickpeas from the can.
However, in the next post, I will show you a delicious dip, another version of hummus that is made with chickpeas from scratch.
My kids loved this. I have told Daniel, my youngest one that this hummus is a “purple cheese”. He was more than happy to try it, but as soon as he gave me a thumbs up I told him it was made with beets.
Which he assumed, but I didn’t confirm. On the other note, my Nebs and I could NOT stop eating.
I didn’t have any crackers. So, I improvised by cutting tortillas into triangles and baking it for a couple of minutes until it became crunchy. Man, it was so good!
Serve it with some pita bread, or crackers and enjoy this delicious and healthy dip with your loved ones this winter season.
Hummus with Beets
- 3 smaller purple Beets or 1 large
- 1 cup 165g. Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) /cooked
- 2 tbsp. 28g. Tahini
- 2-3 garlic cloves crushed and peeled
- 2-3 tbsp. 29-44 ml Olive Oil
- 3 tbsp. 44ml Water
- 1/2 tsp. 1g Allspice
- Juice of 1 lemon ripe
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Salt to taste
- Preheat oven to 450F (232C). Wash beets and cut both ends, then wrap in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake/roast beets for 45 minutes. Remove from the alum. Foil (allow foil to cool down for at least a couple of minutes, so it is easier to handle hot beets, and also beets will steam up). When you unwrap, just peel the skin. If you are using bigger beet, then slice it into quarters for easier blending.
- In your food processor or a blender, place all the ingredients listed above. Add salt to taste. I would start with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Blend/process, taste and see if you need to add more.
- Garnish: I reserved some of the beets and chickpeas. Simply just dice beets and place on top and add a couple of chickpeas, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of allspice. You can certainly add chopped parsley, toasted sesame seeds, etc.
Leftovers: Refrigerate for up to 3 days in airtight container. Tahini: Sesame Seed Paste. A bit thinner than Peanut butter consistency, but looks very much like peanut butter. Try to get Organic Tahini, or make it yourself. Let me know down in the comments if you would like that recipe. Also, what other hummuses would you like me to make? Carrots? Sweet and Savory? Black bean? Peas? Soybean? Allspice is optional, but I think it complements this dish perfectly.
