Quick Roasted Root Vegetable Hummus

A beautiful pink hummus flavored with the gentle sweetness of freshly picked root vegetables.


As I gradually strive to find a routine, I realize there really is no such a thing as a new normal, things are either normal or they are not. Normal, I have learned is a good place to be be, new normal, not so much… Fumbling through this beautiful roasted vegetable hummus that I made today, I realize that even though my problems are no where near getting over, there just might be hope. I have begun to find my way back to the kitchen, cooking the simple things that I love and enjoy making. Easy practical things, frugal on time and ingredients. In order to beat the heat, I came up with this version of cheater roasted vegetables – pretty simple, done in a microwave. Makes me realize why the microwave is so popular in Indian kitchens.

We have had the roasted bell pepper, the cracked black pepper and chive and then Aadi’s favorite black bean hummus, all to get our creative juices going. I will tell you what I always say, at heart a good hummus is about the chickpeas, ditch the can and cook the chickpeas until they are very tender, use some of the broth. This hummus is very mild mannered and other than its gorgeous color will seduce you with its mild and delicately sweet taste.
