This spring, students in Duluth, Two Harbors and Silver Bay got the chance to test taste beet hummus in their lunchrooms as part of the Healthy Northland Farm to School initiative. Students at East High School in Duluth gave the hummus great reviews – 112 said they want it served again, 66 said it was okay and only seven said they didn’t like it. Want to try this teenager-approved hummus at home? Here’s the recipe.
