Personal Trainer Recipe – Roasted Beet Hummus


This hummus has a wonderfully light lemony touch but still has the rich depth of a very satisfying, absolutely delicious dip/spread.

I threw the whole beets (skin on), onto the barbecue on indirect heat for about 45 minutes. The skin then peeled off easily.


In food processor, put the following:

1 Large Roasted Beet

1 cup Roasted Chick Peas (the crunchy “snack” variety found in stores with the nuts) (Shown in Pic)

Zest of one large lemon

Juice of 1/2 large lemon

1 good pinch of salt and pepper (adjust later if needed)

2 large fresh garlic cloves

3 TBSP’s Tahini (found in stores with peanut butters)

1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Serve with raw veggies, pita, crackers or as a base for a sandwich.



A fabulous Personal Trainer Recipe snack.
