2 Simple Hummus Recipes: Beet & Roasted Bell Pepper

There’s much to love about hummus. One reason is that this creamy, dreamy snack is suitable for folks of all specialty diets, which is why hummus wins big at social gatherings. This crowd-pleasing dish is packed with protein and combines well some really creative ingredients once you get the hang of it! Enhance your hummus by adding additional fruits, veggies, various condiments, beans and even nuts and seeds.

Here, we’ve created two: a perfectly pink beet hummus with a hint of balsamic vinegar, and the other is a roasted bell pepper hummus, which calls for spicy sriracha!

Both options pair well with Simple Mills Fine Ground Sea Salt Almond Flour Crackers, which are vegan and gluten-free (of course, a side of crunchy veggies is always welcome!). Make these dips on the same day and serve in a segmented platter surrounded by crunchy dippers and extra toppings so people can garnish their personal servings!

Pretty much the only appliance you’ll need for these recipes is a food processor. Hungry for hummus? Let’s get blending!
