Beet Hummus

This magenta colored hummus will have everyone dipping vegetables. Not only is the vibrant color a great addition to your party platters, beets add a subtle sweetness and a delicious twist to traditional hummus. It stores in the refrigerator up to a week, but I doubt it will last that long. If you’re a fan of this recipe share your version by tagging me on Instagram @y_delicacies. Enjoy!!!
