    Spring has sprung and Summer is nearly here. Let’s celebrate these sunnier days with a more color. Today’s recipe, BEETROOT HUMMUS TARTLET, calls for fresh beets, pastry dough and a food processor (or blender) and a mixed green salad.

    Why Beetroot?
    Aside from their gorgeously vibrant color, Beets are high in Calcium, Iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Fiber, Potassium and Manganese which are good for not only boosting your immune system but are essential to healthy nerve and muscle function.

    Prep time 10
    Cook time 15
    Servings 4

    Ingredients
    250 gr organic gluten free all-purpose flour (can be done with regular all-purpose flour)
    125 gr organic butter
    5 gr salt
    5 gr of Italian seasonings
    60 gr water

    Instructions
    1. Take the butter out of the fridge the night before so it is at room temperature
    2. Place all ingredients for the dough in the mixer and mix until it forms a dough
    3. The advantage of this recipe is that you don’t have to put it a few hours in the fridge, you can work it right away.
    4. Place pastry dough on a flat floured surface and start rolling from the center out, lifting and turning pastry occasionally to keep it from sticking. If the pastry begins to stick, rub more flour, a little at a time, on the flat surface and rolling pin.
    5. Form dough into a 1-inch-thick disk and place in each mold
    6. The best is to place those molds in the freezer for 15 minutes before cooking them, it will allow the edges not to fall.
    7. Cook the pastry shells for 15 minutes at 380 or until golden brown, watch it can quickly turn from brown to burnt! This can be done the day before and they can be kept in a closed container.
