    In small bowl, toss beets with 2 teaspoons of the oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt; place in single layer in pan. Remove any loose pieces of peel from bulb of garlic. Place garlic on small piece of foil (about 6-inch square), and drizzle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon olive oil; pull sides of foil up around garlic, and place on pan with beets. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until beets are tender and garlic is soft. Allow beets and garlic to cool 20 minutes at room temperature.

    Gently squeeze 6 cloves of roasted garlic into bowl of food processor. Add beets, chick peas, tahini, 3 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon juice, water and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Cover; process 2 to 3 minutes, scraping sides occasionally, until smooth.

    Spoon hummus into serving bowl; top with feta cheese, walnuts, chives and lemon peel. Serve with chips.

Expert Tips

  • If using purchased, precooked beets, reduce to 6 oz of beets.
  • Extra cloves of roasted garlic can be refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen up to 1 month.
  • Roasting the garlic results in a rich but milder flavor.
  • This hummus serves well with fresh vegetables like celery, carrots or endive leaves.
