What you'll need:
1 small beet
2 cloves garlic
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons tahini
1/3 cup olive oil
Pepper and salt, to taste
What you'll do:
1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a glass baking dish with tin foil.
2. Wash beet and trim the leaves and stem. Place in the baking dish and cover with foil. I baked several beets at the same time and it took approximately 65 minutes. You'll know when the beets are cooked because a fork will easily slide through the center.
3. Remove the beets from oven and let cool 10 minutes.
4. Peel the skin from the beet and chop into chunks. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
