I know, I know, making pink hummus seems like a lot of unnecessary work but I promise its worth it. Not just for the beautiful variations of pink, but it tastes delish and compliments the earthiness of the other ingredients in the bowl. The color is derived from boiled beets, and truly makes the most beautiful pink tones. Im obsessed! I could dye everything with beets! This bowl came about when I was experimenting with making Dukkah. It is such a aromatic and unique mixture I had to do it justice with its intended use.
Ingredients for my Dukkah:
2/3 cup of cashews
2/3 cup of shelled pistachios
3 tbsp of toasted sesame seeds
2 tbsp of coriander seeds
1 tbsp of fennel seeds
1 tbsp of red pepper flakes
2 tbsp black pepper
1 tsp flaked sea salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cashews & pistachios on baking sheet, and roast for about 5 minutes or until fragrant
2. Toast coriander & fennel seeds on a skillet over medium heat until fragrant
3. Transfer all ingredients to a food processor or a mortar and pestle. Process until finely ground or evenly mixed.
4. Seal in airtight container for up to two weeks in fridge!
Ingredients for Pink Hummus:
1 red beet
1 can of garbanzo beans
1 clove of garlic
2 tablespoons of lemon
1/4 cup of tahini
Salt to taste
1. Boil beet until tender. Skin should easily slip off or easily peeled off. To get a dark pink you should use about half the beet, for a lighter pink only a few pieces are needed.
2. Transfer strained garbanzo beans into food processor with garlic, lemon, tahini and salt
3. Add small pieces of beet until desired pink!
Ingredients for Bowl:
Falafels: We used falafels made fresh from a local mediterranean market, but you could always make them from scratch, there are a ton of recipes online
Crumble about 3-4 falafels

Pickled red onions
2 Thinly sliced radish
Sprinkle of Sumac
Sprinkle of Dukkah
Slice of lemon
Optional: a few garbanzo beans & sprouts
