Beets are the ultimate food for your liver. Pair this hummus with raw veggies or Flackers (flaxseed cracker). This hummus is bean-free making it easy on digestion. If you can tolerate beans, however, feel free to add ½ can garbanzo beans for added protein.
• 1 pound cooked, peeled, and cooled beets, about 2 medium (or 1 pack of vacuum-packed, cooked beets from Trader Joe’s)
• 3 tablespoons tahini
• 1 clove garlic
• 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more as needed
• 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 2 teaspoons ground cumin
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
Cut the beets into chunks and put them in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Add the tahini, garlic, oil, lemon juice, cumin, and salt, and process until completely smooth. Add a little more oil as needed to get a smooth consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to develop.
