Nothing quite tops the rich red and burgundy of a red beet. Whether it be in raviolis or this hummus recipe, they just add so much to a dish, visually speaking.
- 2 medium-sized Red Beets
- 1 Cup Chickpeas
- 1 Clove Garlic
- 2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
- 1 Meyer Lemon
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Sea Salt
1. Wash and trim the red beets and then wrap them in tinfoil. Place them in baking dish with 1/8 inch of water and roast them for about an hour at 375 degrees.
2. In a small sauce pan, add two tablespoons of sesame seeds and just enough olive oil to coat. You don’t want to dominate the sesame seed flavor with olive oil.
3. Cook them over a medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or as needed. When the mixture looks like the photo below, remove them from the stove.
4. When the red beats are fully cooked (you can tell by poking them with a knife) then remove them from the oven and let cook. Once cooled, peel them and cube them.
5. Add the following ingredients to your food processor: the cup of chickpeas, the two tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds, the roasted beets and a pinch of salt.
6. Add 1/2 of the lemon juice to the mixture and puree it. Add more lemon as needed.
7. Salt to taste and serve. Enjoy!
Twist the Oreos to separate them (see notes), and scrape off the cream filling (either discard the filling...or eat it, if you're into that.) Melt (and temper, if you can be bothered - see notes) the chocolate, then stir in the mint extract well. Dip an oreo half in the melted chocolate, turn to coat using a fork. Use the fork to remove the oreo from the chocolate, tap it on the edge of the bowl a few times (to let excess chocolate drip off) and transfer to a lined cookie sheet.
Leave at room temperature until set. You can decorate the chocolate dipped Oreos before the chocolate sets with sprinkles, maldon salt, chopped nuts or a drizzle of white chocolate for some contrast

We just love that color combination!
Color used is Primer Red (note that this is a color, not an actual primer) a base color and then a wash of Emperor’s Silk to achieve a deep, luminescent appearance. For the shelves and backboard of the cabinet is a progression of Florence that is mixed with Cream to get just the right western turquoise color.

You know how there are just some people that know how to craft their hearts out? Kelli Murray is one of those gals. Did you see the watercolor paper flower DIY she shared with us a few months back? Girl knows how to craft for sure, and you can add these DIY clay feathers to the long list of pretty things she knows how to make.
These would also be great to decorate gifts.
