    Chickpea-less Beet Hummus (oil-free, vegan, gluten-free)

    Chickpea-less Beet Hummus made with no beans, no oil for an easy and yummy plant-based dip!

    I loveeee my chickpeas. Like more than one likely should be loving their chickpeas. Hummus, falafel, chickpea pasta, in a salad, roasted, you name it. I also am lucky my body seems to react well to chickpeas too and I don’t get stomaches or anything, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for many.

    For anyone who does not tolerant chickpeas well, this Chickpea-less Beet Hummus is for you. And if you love your chickpeas, you will still love this creamy flavorful spread. There is NO oil added in here either, so helllllooo that is shocking.

    Filled with cauliflower florets, cooked beets, garlic and more, this chickpea-less hummus is SO easy to make and it is the best dip to pack for work, make for a little dinner party or just smear on your sandwich or use as a salad dressing.

    I personally love dipping Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps in this dip because the flavor combo is unreal. Like try not to eat an entire bag in one sitting, I dare you. They are a staple in my pantry and Jord brings them to work and all his co-workers go crazaaayyy!

    They are high in protein compared to most savory snacks and they are gluten-free and even have a solid amount of protein and fiber. My favorite are the lightly salted and black pepper but you seriously can’t go wrong with any. Plus they even have lentil brand AND black bean crisps!

    I also love using their products instead of croutons in my salads for an extra crunch (remember this Crunchy Green Goddess Salad with Tahini Dressing? so good).

    When you make this dip, you will 100x dye your hands red from the beets, you have been warned my friends. I promise it is worth it. I even dyed my marble accidentally while doing this (luckily it came right out with baking soda and water!)

    QUICK NOTES

    • This dip stays pretty well in the fridge after making for up to 5 days and you can freeze it too. I made this when it was just me home and froze half of it (key to not overeating) for later
    • I used steamed cauliflower as I digest that a bit easier but if you prefer using raw, it will still work. It just may not be as creamy

    Just made this tonight, Rach! I’ve been looking for a bean-less hummus substitute FOREVER. I roasted the beets to give it some of that roasted flava. LOVE.

    […] When you get over the color of black bean dip (I mean, it looks kind of charcoal-like, I know), and add it to your food, you will love it. It goes so well in this bowl filled with quinoa, grass-fed beef, avocado, romaine and my favorite crunchy Harvest Snaps. I used the black bean ones and love the Mango Chile Lime flavor. They add protein, fiber, a flavor boost AND a crunch in this bowl. I love using them in place of a chip or tortilla strips to spice things up. You may remember their snap pea crisps from the Chickpea-less Beet Hummus. […]
