Lone's Persian Lime Roasted Beet Hummus

Thank you Lone, for this creation!  What I love about this hummus is that there are only 5 ingredients (plus a little extra virgin olive oil for roasting ) and that's it! SOOOO good!  Goes great with tortilla chips, rice crackers and raw veggies.  It is so different from traditional hummus and so refreshing.  A little garnish of cilantro really compliments the flavours too (if you're a cilantro junkie like me)!

 

Ingredients 

1 large beet, peeled & roasted

1 head of garlic, roasted and cloves removed from skin

1 can chick peas with most of the liquid

1/4 C  NOOC Persian Lime Olive Oil 

2 tbsp NOOC Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

Salt (I use about 3/4 tsp, but you can adjust to suit your taste)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°.  Peel and quarter beets and toss in 1 1/2 tbsp EVOO.  Wrap in foil or place in a small, heavy oven-safe dish with a lid.  Slice the head of garlic in half (across all the cloves) drizzle with 1/2 tbsp EVOO, put back together and wrap in foil.  Roast beets and garlic in oven for 30-40 mins (this varies depending on your oven, just make sure they are all soft).  

Next place all ingredients in a bullet or blender and bend until smooth.  You probably won't need to add any water but if it won't blend properly, you can add some a tablespoon at a time.
