Ginger Beet Hummus Recipe (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Beet Ginger Hummus | This easy hummus recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free and delicious! It’s also loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients, making it an extra healthy snack. | Shuangy’s Kitchen Sink #shuangyskitchensink #glutenfree #dairyfree #healthysnack #hummus #ginger #antiinflammatory #beets #hummusrecipe

 

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. This Ginger Beet Hummus recipe is a sweet and spicy twist of the traditional savory hummus. It is vegan, gluten-free, full of anti-inflammatory ingredients and super easy to make.

Is Hummus Anti-Inflammatory?

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 beet and a little spicy kick from the ginger. In addition to the delicious flavor profile, there are so many health benefits to ginger and beetroot as well. These two ingredients are both great functional foods to help reduce Chronic Inflammation (I go in depth a bit more in this post ).

Benefits of Beetroot

Firstly, beetroot is high in vitamins and minerals including iron, vitamin C, Folate, Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Potassium, etc. I always incorporate beetroot in my diet during my menstrual period to provide an extra boost of iron. Secondly, it is also a great pre-workout food. Studies suggest that the dietary nitrates in beetroot help improve oxygen use and time to exhaustion, thus may enhance athletic performance (read more here).

Benefits of Ginger

You may be familiar with Ginger through its reputation of aiding digestion and boosting immune system. Additionally, it can ease menstrual pains, inflammation, help treat nausea and many other benefits (Read more Here ). 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.
