Lemony Beet Hummus with Poached Wonderful Pistachios

Move over, traditional hummus! This new twist on the dip uses white beans to allow all its flavors to shine through. Its pretty hue is thanks to beets and pistachios! Pair with sliced cucumbers, jicama, or whole grain pita chips. Enjoy as a sandwich condiment, too.
