Beets are one of my favorite vegetables. I love them in salad, on the side with my dinner or just as a simple little snack. Needless to say when I spotted the Trader Joe`s Beet Hummus I was immediately intrigued and had to incorporate it into my week.
Due to the sheer deep purple shade to the hummus I believed 1) you`d have to undoubtedly love beets to enjoy it and 2) you`d have to really love hummus/chick peas in order to enjoy this. Upon first taste that theory was very much true. The hummus is blended with with fresh beets - while there are little diced up pieces on top of the hummus mixture for some added flare/texture.
Texture wise it`s slightly `gritty` and not as smooth as traditional hummus. While there is a slight graininess to the dish, it is thinner in consistency. It`s not runny, but it`s certainly not as thick as your traditional or even flavored hummus dishes. I enjoyed the hummus alongside a protein-filled salad. Delicious and quite unique!
