Roasted Beets are such a treat for me. Their sweet earthy flavor makes them the perfect salad topper, veggie burger binder, savory soup enhancer, and super creamy dip ingredient. Roasted Golden Beet Hummus is packed with vitamins and nutrients and will satisfy your most intense snack attacks.

There are so many variations of hummus, each with its own personality and flavor profile, all pretty easy to prepare. One of my favorites is sweet potato hummus, but I’ve always loved a good classic hummus as well. I’m now putting Roasted Golden Beet Hummus in my rotation! It is absolutely delicious as a dip, but wait until you try it as a sandwich spread!! Oh my!

Roasted Golden Beet Hummus is such a lovely light snack, wonderful for Summer Thyme (pairs nicely with Summer Thyme Sangria too).
