Last week I received my new cookbook “Run Fast Eat Slow”. I decided to do a Julie & Julia style posting series about the recipes I make in this book. The only similarities really are that I want to make all the recipes in the book.
I made the:
Don’t Get Beet Hummus
Right off the top, let me say that I dislike beets. I have tried them many a ways and they usually remind me of dirt. Their color on the other hand… what a glorious shade… It looked so desirable that it was one of the first recipes I tried. It was very very easy to make. The only thing I didn’t know how to do was cook the beets, but there are instructions on how to do that on another page. Score! I cooked about four beets at once and used them for some other beet recipes in the book. I combined all ingredients in my Ninja blender and voila! Beet Hummus… My husband said it was good… I said it was delicious and I ate the whole thing in one sitting. Yeah I know I probably wasn’t suppose to do that.
I drizzled a little olive oil on it as mentioned in the cookbook and ate them with some pita chips. The hummus really didn’t taste much like beets but it added such a nice sweetness to compliment the garlic. So scrumptious. Thank you to those wonderful authors. A+
DEFINITELY make this recipes.
Has anyone else tried this recipe?? Let me know what you thought!
Thanks! Gotta run… Josey
