Balsamic Roasted Spiralized Beets with Brussels Sprouts and Hummus Dressing

Happy Monday, everyone! As you read this when it posts in the morning, I am most likely still en route home, having taken a red eye flight home Sunday evening.

Total zombie mode today.

Balsamic Roasted Spiralized Beets with Brussels Sprouts and Hummus Dressing

I’m writing this on Thursday (March 3rd), but let’s pretend it’s Monday. This past weekend, I celebrated the upcoming nuptials of one of my childhood best friends at her bachelorette party! This will have been my first bachelorette party, aside from my own last year!

We went to Palm Springs, one of my favorite places to vacation (too bad it’s 830456345 miles away on the west coast.)

Needless to say, I figured I’d schedule a super healthy post for Monday, because I’m going to be needing all of the vegetables possible. #alltheveggies

Balsamic Roasted Spiralized Beets with Brussels Sprouts and Hummus Dressing

I’m really excited about today’s recipe. And yes, the blog is still vegan! It’s still March, right?

Roasting beets are my favorite way to cook them and personally, there’s no better way to season beets than with balsamic vinegar! They become tangy, which works really well with the salty taste of the brussels sprouts, which are roasted in soy sauce.

Now for this hummus dressing. If you’re making this as a side dish for dinner, omit the dressing. But, if you’re making this for lunch or a starter salad to a meal, keep the dressing! I was trying to figure out what to serve with these veggies and I thought, “Why not just add a dollop of hummus?” Then, I was researching about lemons (a whoooole other story) and I discovered a hummus dressing with lemon from Martha Stewart.

That lady knows her stuff – this dressing is perfect!

Now here we are. You’re going to love this recipe – and it saves well in the refrigerator, for up to 3-4 days!

If you need me, I’ll be slurping caffeine for the rest of the day.

My Spiralizer is old... can't find the directions... can you tell me which blade is which? I have 3 and I don't think they are labeled. The only one I use is the one that makes liguini shaped things (ie: zucchini.) Thanks, Victoria
I hate sprouts what else can I use instead please?
Teri M says:
This is an excellent recipe! I didn't even add the hummus dressing. I have been using your recipes and they are really making me want the good veggies and not the junk. I already have a spiralizer but ordered two for my daughter and daughter-in-law for their birthdays. Your recipes are great and so I your cookbook but I really get motivated when I watch your videos too. Thanks!
Cathy Ammlung says:
Think maybe you could roast asparagus, or possibly broccoli florets, instead of sprouts... gonna make this tonight as a side for fish. May make hummus dressing get for all...
Lisca says:
I hate sprouts, but my hubby loves them so I thought I´d give this recipe a go. It is delicious! I am converted! What a great recipe. It turned out really well. I didn´t put the humus dressing on. We had it as a side dish to roasted cod. I cooked it all together in the oven. Even heated up the spiralized beet in the oven too. Thank you so much. I shall make this again and again!
Carie says:
This recipe is amazing! I wasn't a huge brussels sprouts fan, but this makes them taste so yummy. The first time I made it I tripled the recipe and ate it for lunch every day for a week served over Farro. Just made another triple recipe you can't wait for another weeks worth of lunches!
Carie says:
As a sidenote, the second time I made it I cut down on the amount of oil used without a change in taste. The hummus dressing puts this recipe over-the-top!
Lori Yanosich says:
We made this last night without the hummus dressing and it was fabulous! It was the first time I've made beets in the 28 years we've been married and my hubby loved it! Thanks, Alli for such great healthy ideas!

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫
