Do you guys remember that one song "Showstopper" by Danity Kane? It was like the best song ever to get ready to back in the day! Am I right? I'm right.
I sing that song to myself every time I'm eating beet hummus, and I definitely hum the tune in my head when I see it at the grocery. Because HELLO! Beet hummus is a total show stopper.
JUST LOOK AT THE BEAUTY!
This seasons holiday parties are upon us. This is my most favorite time of year! Who doesn't love festive get-togethers with your friends, family, & food? It does however mean that you'll be doing some extra food planning for hosting, or pot-lucks.
When I began planning, I knew that I wanted to use beet hummus somehow at some point, and most likely in an appetizer.
I stumbled across a bruschetta post on Pinterest one day and I thought "Brilliant! I'll combine the two!"
So that's how this little recipe guy came about. TA-DA!
While I do love to be in the kitchen, I am also quite the lazy-gal at times. And if I'm going to be hosting and cooking other dishes on the day of the party, it's nice to have some things that are ready to go.
Enter: Trader Joe's beet hummus.
This isn't the first recipe I've made with their hummus either. A couple weeks back I made this beetroot pizza that was amaze.
I know that a lot of people like to make their own, but in my opinion, if it ain't broke don't fix it!
This is obviously a new take on traditional bruschetta. Aside from throwing hummus into the mix, I also subbed basil for cilantro. This mostly came about because I have tons of cilantro right now. But also, it tasted FABULOUS with the beet flavoring. So no regrets there. Obviously you can still use basil, but you should try out the cilantro at some point!
