Brighten the table and your body with our favorite beet hummus! Beets are a powerful source of antioxidants, which help fight free radical damage throughout the body. The betaine in beets supports the liver — it removes toxins in the liver cells and protects the bile ducts and liver from injury. As well as supporting the liver, betaine is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties. Beets also contain glutamine, which helps to restore gut health and is part of our gut healing protocol at Parsley Health . Enjoy this beet hummus with chopped vegetables, gluten free crackers, or on top of a green salad. I love adding root vegetables to my hummus— it is lighter and fluffier than traditional hummus.
