Roasted Beet:

  • 1 medium to large beet peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 2 cups chickpeas cooked
  • 1 cup tahini
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove of fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

Garnish (Optional)

  • sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, olive oil, mint, bee pollen, chopped cilantro


Roasted Beet:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place the beet, olive oil, garlic and onion powder and salt and pepper in a small cast iron skillet or small baking dish and toss together so everything gets coated.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until soft and tender. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.


  • Add the roasted beet, chickpeas, tahini, garlic powder and lemon juice to a blender and pulse until smooth. This will take several minutes and remember to check for consistency, you want it completely smooth.
  • With the blender on low speed, slowly pour in the olive oil and continue blending until silky and smooth.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and blend again as needed.
  • Serve immediately garnished with optional toppings or refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to serve.


Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
If using leftovers from making a batch of roasted beets, simply combine all ingredients in the blender and continue from there.
