Beet It!

We love beets here at Growing Roots - it is the veggie of choice that stands as our logo, it's the name of the Growing Roots blog, The Market Beet, it's everwhere. Everything about them is just so appealing - their beautiful red color, or gold for golden beets, or red and white for chioggia beets. So tasty, and so good for you too!

Well a good friend of Growing Roots, Nicole Riegl, from The Riegl Palate posted a great recipe last week for Roasted Beet Hummus. And, since we're just entering beet season, we though this was a perfect time to tip our hat to the beet, and show you something new to prepare using the humble beet!

Just look at this beautiful hummus featuring beets! Imagine how delicious this would be with rye crackers, or on bread with a crumble of goat cheese!
