Beets are yet another root vegetable that I love. Not only are they a beautiful bright red color, but they are also packed with nutrients and detoxifying for your body.
I always steam my beets because steaming is an excellent way to prepare them, preserving the most nutrients and keeping the glycemic index the lowest.
Try this hummus with your favorite chip or like I do with sliced cucumbers, celery, peppers, and carrots.
- 4 beets, steamed, peeled and then chilled in the refrigerator
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- zest of 1 lemon
- juice of 1 lemon
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 tsp Seaweed Gomasio (a mixture of sea salt, sesame seeds, and seaweed)
Combine all of the above ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
