Hummus is one of my favorite foods, I could eat it with just about everything. Spread on toasts, dip for crackers, veggies, pita bread, sweet potato fries, or just eat straight out of the bowl, hummus is always a great filling and wholesome treat. This Ginger Beet Hummus recipe of mine is a sweet and spicy twist on the traditional savory hummus you have probably seen at the grocery store. My rendition is vegan, gluten-free, full of yummy ingredients and super easy to make.

What Makes a Hummus

Classic hummus is usually savory and made with chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic.

This Ginger Beet Hummus recipe is a combo that gives the traditional hummus recipe a touch of earthiness from the beets and a subtle spicy kick from the ginger.

In addition to the delicious flavor profile, there are so many wholesome qualities found in the ingredients. These two ingredients are both wonderful ways to expand your pallet and get your family to try!

What Does Ginger Add?

Ginger has been one of my family’s favorite functional foods since I was a child.

Growing up in China, my parents used ginger almost in everything: stir-fry, soup, pickled side dish, tea and much more. Ginger can lend a lovely spiced brightness to your favorite savory dishes.
