In a food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice and process for about 1 – 2 minutes, scraping the sides to the bottom of the bowl when needed. This extra time helps whip the tahini, which is part of the secret of making this hummus smooth and creamy!
Add the garlic clove, cumin, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the whipped tahini and lemon juice. Process for about a minute, scraping the sides to the bottom of the bowl when needed.
Add the chickpeas and beets to the food processor along with a tablespoon of water and process until well combined and smooth – about 1 – 2 minutes.
If the hummus is too thick or is still chunky, add a tablespoon of water one at a time until smooth and of desired consistency.
