Beet hummus



Below is a recipe that the UCLA Public Health Nutrition Club and the Healthy Campus Initiative have been using in instruction food demos.

Assuming 6 servings, the hummus results in 90 g CO2-equivalent emissions per serving.  For comparison, a 1 oz slice of cheese results in 274 g CO2 eq emissions.  To put this in context, switching from the cheese to the hummus just once equates to saving emissions equivalent to those released by a 0.8 mile drive (assuming a 40 mile per gallon car).
