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!

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
