Roasted Beet Hummus

I originally made this back in November after scoring several bunches of organic beets on super sale at the food store. I decided to whip up a double batch so I could freeze some of it. Last week I defrosted the remaining container to see how it held up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that by adding just a touch more olive oil, and a quick stir, the texture and taste returned to its pre-frozen state!

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and puree until desired consistency is achieved.
