Beet Hummus

Beet the Beet Up Hummus

I am somewhere exactly in the middle of stereotypically girly and not girly. A lot like I’m somewhere in the middle of Leslie Knope and April Ludgate. While I can probably out-belch you and I will never complain about an action movie, I also love dresses and glitter and pink.

I have a whole collection of recipes I want to make because they are pink. A lot of them have beets in them because… well, they’re pink. Obviously. I’m finally getting my ass around to doing it. I made beet hummus. It’s fucking awesome. My version isn’t as brightly colored as other pics of beet hummus on the internet, but I don’t give a fuck because I know my photos aren’t touched up and I know that it’s amazing and delicious.

What pink shit should I make next?

Beet Hummus

Just… beet it.

Also, it works great if anyone is throwing an ironic, retro, Jersey Shore party. But… please don’t.

    That looks like a great recipe, I fell in love with beets a couple years ago – I need to make this happen.
