I bought some lovely candy cane beets at the farmer’s market over the 4th of July weekend. I thought I would roast them. Then as the rainy weekend progressed, I had the opportunity to pick up a friend’s farm co-op for her while she was on vacation. I thought it would be nice to make her some goodies with her veggies – as she was coming home from her vacation the next day. Her crops had some really small red beets. My mind started racing and hummus came to mind. The candy cane and classic red beets made such a fun colored hummus. I divided up it up and packaged some up for her and kept some for my family. We use it on sandwiches, on salads and of course to dip chips or veggies in. It was so good and well-received by my vacationing friends.
