The Hummus Amongus
The Super Bowl is coming up this weekend, and I need to bring something to our friends house. Don’t tell my husband, but i’m much, much more excited about skiing right now! Powdery, fluffy snow, yay! As much as I love to make food, I really don’t want to be in the kitchen this weekend, since i’m itching to get outside for some fun adventures. Ya know what I mean? It’s your basic food/outdoors lover conundrum! My solution is to make these easy hummus variations, toss in some chopped veggies, and call it a day. This is a super short-cut recipe, which could also be made with homemade hummus, but of course! However, if you are short on time, and eager for adventures, this dolled up version of a hummus trio will treat you right. Go ahead and plan to look like a little bit of a superstar as you walk into the super bowl party with wind-kissed cheeks, the perfume of fresh air, and a dazzling little bowl of Beet, Spinach-avocado, and Golden Beet-Turmeric Hummus. Have your hummus and eat it to?
- 32 oz fresh made (store-bought) Hummus*
- 1 orange, peeled
- 1, 4 oz. pack roasted beets*
- 1 avocado, halved, pitted
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1, 4 oz. pack roasted golden beets*
- 1 T. ground turmeric
- -Serve with crackers or fresh cut veggies
- Divide the hummus into 3 smaller bowls.
- In a food processor, place 1 bowl of the hummus, the orange, and pack of roasted beets. Puree until completely smooth, remove from food processor and return to bowl. Wash food processor.
- In the food processor, place 1 bowl of the hummus, flesh of the avocado and spinach. Puree until completely smooth, remove from food processor and return to bowl. Wash food processor.
- Last time, in the food processor, add the last bowl of hummus, golden beets and turmeric. Puree until completely smooth, remove from food processor and return to bowl.
- Dollop the 3 types of hummus into a bow, together or leave in the individual bowls and drizzle with some good evoo and sea salt. Serve with crackers and fresh cut veggies!
- Note: I can recommend the hummus and both types of roasted beets from Trader Joe's. They are good quality, and made with great ingredients. Always check the package if you are buying anything pre-made like this, as there are often unnecessary added ingredients.
- *As I mentioned in the description, you are welcome to make your own hummus here and play with the variations. There are SO many fun types of hummus to make, and it's typically a fun way to get kids to eat their veggies. 😉
