Last week I posted recipes for Chilled Carrot Soup Shooters and Roasted Cauliflower Hummus (yum!). This week, I'm bringing you another kind of hummus AND something to satisfy your party guests' sweet teeth without slapping them in the face with a sugar bomb.
Now, I personally never read the whole story behind other bloggers' recipes. I just scroll straight down to the recipes SO: I'm just going to get down to business !!
Let's make some food!
Makes about 4 cups
4 medium beets (the reason I'm not telling you how many pounds here is because sometimes when you buy beets, the greens are heavier than the beets themselves)
3 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp lemon juice
3 roasted garlic cloves (since I'd already roasted one head of garlic for the cauliflower hummus, I used cloves from that head instead of raw; read about how to roast garlic here)
1 tbsp cumin
Zest from 2 lemons
Good pinch of kosher salt
NOTE: This recipe is adapted from one I found at SimplyRecipes.com; I thought the original was a little too runny so I added tahini. I also found that it tasted better 24 hours after making it so don't be afraid to make ahead!
Green Smoothie Dessert Shooter
Makes about 6 cups (so, about 16 3-oz shot pours)
3 big handfuls of baby spinach
4 sprigs of cilantro
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 of an avocado
2 cups of whatever kind of milk you want (I prefer cashew or flax seed milk)
Some kind of berry for garnish
