This easy to make bright pink roasted beet hummus recipe is smooth and creamy, and its stunning pink color makes for a great crowd pleaser.


Units Scale
  • 115 oz can white cannellini beans (rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup reserved bean liquid
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium size red beet (roasted)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachio


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
  • Next, wash, peel, and slice your beet into quarters.
  • Place beet slices on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and place in the oven for ~1 hour or until a knife when inserted can easily slide through the beets.*
  • Once beets are finished cooking remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • Next, in a food processor pulse the beets until only small pieces remain.
  • Then combine drained white beans, bean liquid, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
  • Taste your hummus and add more salt/pepper or lemon per your taste. At this point you can also add a few more tablespoons of bean liquid or water if needed for a thinner desired consistency.
  • Top the hummus with a sprinkle of chopped pistachios and a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Serve with sliced veggies or crackers and enjoy!


Alternatively you can buy pre-cooked beets and use those to reduce the time it takes to make this hummus.
