Roasted Red Beet Hummus from My Bottomless Boyfriend
by Keleigh May on November 7th, 2014

Roasted Red Beet Hummus
  • 1 large roasted or canned beet (or two small/medium)
  • 1 15 oz. can chickpeas, drained
  • Zest and juice of one large lemon
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

To Roast Beets:

Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Remove the stems from the beets. Scrub clean. Trim. Toss beets with a little olive oil, just enough to coat. Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add other herbs and spices as desired. Wrap eat beet with foil and place on baking sheet. Roast for about 60 minutes or until tender. You should be able to insert a knife through the beet without resistance. Let cool and peel the skin off if desired. At this point, the skin should be so tender that it doesn’t matter if you peel it or not.  

Using a food processer, chop the beet into small pieces. Add remaining ingredients except olive oil and blend until smooth. Slowly pour the olive oil in while the food processor is running. Adjust seasonings and liquids to desired taste and consistency. (I made no adjustments.) Serve with pita bread, pita chips, or sliced veggies. 

The Girlfriend Behind the Bottomless Boyfriend

I have known Danielle since she was a toddler, in fact, we grew up in the same neighborhood (her older brother and I were in the same First Grade Class together).  Danielle is a Registered Dietitian and girlfriend to a bottomless boyfriend. They both love all foods, especially steak (him) and chocolate chip cookies (her).   

She is a self proclaimed recipe hoarder. Her mom has hundreds, maybe thousands, of cookbooks and cooking magazines lining her bookshelves and stuffed into cabinets.  

My Bottomless Boyfriend is Danielle's attempt to make and eat all of these recipes.   The BBF as he is called, came up with the name of her blog, because really, he wll try anything.   She has her BBF and I have my BH (Bottomless Husband), what a coincidence.
