Roasted Beet Hummus

 

Roasted Beet Hummus

Here’s a very popular middle eastern bean that used in hummus recipes. It’s the garbanzo bean! Aka - chickpeas. Eating this colorful hummus is a great way to take advantage of beet root’s anti-inflammatory properties, the bean’s fiber and concentrated source of protein.
