Hummus Bowl


  • Beet Hummus
  • 1 ½ cups raw chickpeas, soaked overnight
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Water to cover
  • 3/4 cup raw tahini
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup cooked beets
  • 1/3-1/2 cup ice water (depending on how loose you want it)
  • Jalapeno vinaigrette

Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Place the soaked chickpeas in a deep pot with baking soda. Mix and let cook over low-to-medium heat. When all the water is evaporated pour in the water to cover. Bring to a boil and turn down the heat to a simmer (skim the film that forms on top). Let simmer on medium until the chickpeas are creamy and break in between your fingers when you pinch it, around 30 minutes.

When the chickpeas are tender strain them and place them in a strong blender with tahini, garlic, salt, beets and blend. Slowly pour in the ice water until creamy and serve warm.
