Low Carb Beet Cashew Hummus

It is a bummer that legumes are not included in the keto diet, which means no hummus! Fortunately, you can make “hummus” with other vegetables like beets. I love the color beets give to this dip and it’s super easy to make! The recipe calls for ~ 1 cup of beets which is about 1 medium beet.

    Step 3 says "add roasted cashews." The ingredients don't say "roasted." What is is supposed to be roasted or un-roasted? I can roast mine in the oven. Just wanting to know what the recipe actually calls for.

        Tastes Good (as it gets without a carb dipper. Celery works, but ???)

              I'm sorry about that, the recipe is corrected now and it calls for 2 T tahini.
