Roasted Beet and Flax Plus Hummus

Hummus is such a deceptively simple snack, and so healthy. We’ve upped the ante on this classic dip by adding roasted beets and our Flax Plus flakes. The result is a garlicky dip (and we all know that’s what you’re looking for in a good hummus) with a shot of vibrant color and a superfood boost – thanks to the Flax Plus. Vegetables, get ready to play second fiddle.
