Author Notes: Roasted beets are a year-round, must-eat staple in the house. Beets are filled with good-for-you nutrients and bring out their natural sweetness when roasted. Combine that with a little Tahini, lemon juice, and zucchini, and you have a true Paleo treat. Who says you need beans to make hummus?! Serve this beautiful dip with some carrot sticks and your guests will be amazed.
