This past week, Elise Bauer, who publishes Simply Recipes, a wonderful food blog full of her family's quick and simple whole food recipes, posted a recipe for Beet Hummus.  I immediately decided to try it with a couple of roasted beets I had sitting in the fridge, only I failed to notice that the recipe did not call for chickpeas.
