Delicious oil free beet hummus

I love making hummus at home because I can make it without oil. Chickpeas and tahini blended together give a very creamy texture. In this recipe, beets are added for a rich color and a sweeter tasting hummus. Easy to make, healthy and very versatile. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

  • 1 can chickpeas (398 mL), rinsed and drained
  • 2 cooked beets, medium size (3 cm diameter), peeled
  • 1 ½ tbsp. tahini paste
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Put all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. You may have to stop and stir with a spoon once in a while and continue blending after doing so.
  • Taste and adjust.
  • I started with the juice of half a lemon and found that it needed more acidity so I ended up using a whole lemon.
  • You may also need to add more salt and blend again as salt will help the flavors come out.
  • If not creamy enough, add more tahini. I used a tahini paste that was quite thick, depending on the texture of the tahini, you may need to add more.
