Golden Beet Hummus

Golden Beet Hummus

Family doesn’t like beets? Try switching in GOLDEN beets! ☀️☀️☀️The color is gorgeous and the taste is more mild… ie. less dirt taste! 😜😜👌👌🌱🌱

I made a golden beet hummus last week and my beet-hating hubby and daughter both LOVED it and DEVOURED it! 💃 Babycakes even said, “You should make this more often, Mommy.”

On this snack plate:
🌟 @hodofoods nugget
🌟 golden beet hummus (recipe below)
🌟 sweet potato crisps
🌟 side of blueberries

☑️ A few tips for getting kids used to new foods:

1) offer just a small amount (like the tofu nugget on this @kizingokids nudge plate!). It’s less intimidating when it’s just a bite or two instead of a full plate.

2) pair it with an adorable @nutridashe food pick “friend” 🥕

3) repeat — sometimes it can take 15+ tries to get kids used to a new texture or flavor. 💪

4) mix things up —- they don’t like the texture of tofu? Try making a crispy version! 💃
