beet hummus

15 oz can chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp. olive oil
3 small pickled beets (roasted and then pickled in balsamic vinegar and liquid from roasting pan)
3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar/liquid from beets
after taste testing and comparing to my traditional hummus I add 2 tbsp. of tahini to add a little zip and slightly thicken it
