Roasted Red Beet Hummus http://buff.ly/1scGmi5

One of my favorite recipes! While I know some would argue that anything other than chickpeas is NOT hummus, I like to explore the addition of other ingredients. Red beets are the perfect one! This hummus is tangy, earthy, and big on flavor. Perfect for pita chips or a sandwich.

Valentine’s Day Pizza with Beets & Kale Pesto

RECIPE: http://cookingstoned.tv/recipe/valentines-day-pizza-with-beets-kale-pesto/

I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to do a Valentine’s Day recipe that was festive but not pumped full of dyes or other artificial crap. And the fact that I love beets doesn’t hurt.

Plus, think of all the different names this pizza could have. The puns are endless! Beet Still My Heart Pizza, Can You Feel My Heart Beets Pizza and Pizza Heart-On to name a few. What would you call it?
