4-ingredient beet hummus that is oil-free, vegan, and made without beans! It is only 42 calories per 2 tablespoon serving.


  • 4 medium beets, trimmed and well-scrubbed (leave peels on)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Fine sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Wrap the beets in foil, completely enclosing. Place foil pack on a baking sheet and roast for 50 to 60 minutes until very easily pierce with tines of a fork. Let cool completely.
  3. Unwrap beets. Wearing gloves, peel or rub off skins (don’t worry–they come of easily). Very coarsely chop and place in a high-speed blender or food processor.
  4. Add the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and 1/2 tsp salt to processor. Process until smooth. Adjust salt to taste.


Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

SUPER-EASY SHORTCUT VERSION: Use 1 and 1/2 15-ounce cans of peeled baby beets (or other canned, non-pickled beets) in place of roasting the beets. Drain the beets thoroughly before using.

Spice it up: Consider adding 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, ground coriander, and or smoked paprika or sriracha to the mix!
