Hello, Angels Working On Earth Family!
Try garnishing the hummus with 2-3 green onions, white and green parts thinly sliced on a diagonal or garnish 1/2 cup cooked rice or cooked quinoa (or use leftover hummus and place over rice or quinoa).
You can also grab some already cooked rice or quinoa from the prepared food section at the grocery store and change this into an entirely different meal.
Beans and rice!
- 1 tablespoon avocado or olive oil (OR extra virgin olive oil)
- ½ medium roasted beet
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 15 oz can chickpeas
- Balsamic Vinegar:
- ½ Cup extra virgin olive oil*
- ½ cup white balsamic vinegar
- 1 Clove crushed garlic
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard 1 pinch of salt
- 1 pinch of pepper
- Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl to let the garlic, mustard, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper marinate while you prep the hummus.
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Peel and slice the beets into ½ inch wedges.
- Place the beets into a baking dish. Drizzle oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until beets is tender.
- Puree beets, olive oil, and vinegar in a food processor or blender until smooth.

- Combine the chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in the bowl of the food processor.
- Process the hummus until it becomes exceptionally smooth, about 5 minutes.
