Beautiful Beet Hummus

We’re a small startup so we also often shoot at people’s houses–and eat the proceeds as we go. Along the way, we find wonderful new foods, including this gorgeous gluten-free, dairy-free beet hummus, which photographer and food stylist, Zoe Armbruster made for us while shooting at her bright, comfy San Francisco flat. Zoe is a breath of fresh air–easy going, naturally chic, and a joy to be around. Not surprisingly, her recipe, is too.
