Beet Hummus

Beet Hummus: A healthy and tasty dip that would make a perfect appetizer with pita chips, or vegetable sticks. I love the aromatic and flavorful taste of hummus and literally do not need anything ? I mean I can eat it alone itself.

Hummus is an Egyptian dip or spread made with cooked chickpeas,beans, tahini,salt, lemon juice and garlic. As an appetizer hummus is scooped with pita bread or it is served as an accompaniment to falafel, grilled meat, and vegetables.It is part of the everyday regular meal in Israel because of its versatility to add flavor in both veg and nonveg dishes.
